That’s a great responsibility we don’t take lightly. We don’t focus on one sector or one issue. And we’re not interested in short-term fixes. Instead, building upon a foundation of science, partnership and field work, we find global solutions to global problems.
World Aid Foundation has a dedicated and compassionate team of talented individuals each of whom brings a unique set of expertise and experience to the organisation. Though everyone has a different role, each person is committed to helping millions of people around the world. We work hard to accomplish our mission – but we insist on having a good time while doing it!
