The Property Race Day has been proud to support so many hugely worthwhile charities both here in the UK and abroad. LandAid, the property industry's charity, benefits each year, whilst, other charities we have supported over the years have finalised inspirational three year projects with our help.
We aim to reflect the property industry's ever-genorous support by selecting charities involving elements of construction, and in the process achieving our charitable mission, in helping children anywhere in the world by alleviating poverty and suffering , improving health and providing oppurtunities for education and training.
THE HOPE FOUNDATION
Over 250,000 children are forced to exist on the streets and in the slums of Calcutta, hungry with shelter or protection. The Hope Foundation (HOPE) was established in 1999 by Irish Humanitarian Maureen Forrest to help these children.
Over the past 15 years HOPE has extended its support and now provides a holistic approach to development which includes working with the children, their families and the community in Kolkata. HOPE is currently reaching out to tens of thousands of people each year through our projects. HOPE have offices back in the UK, Ireland and India and work with 14 local Indian NGOs on the ground in Calcutta, now known as Kolkata.
THE CHILDREN'S TRUST
Our vision is that all children with a brain injury have the opportunity to live the best life possible. We provide expert rehabilitation, education, therapy and care to support children and families from across the UK at our national specialist centre, helping children make the best recovery possible after a serious accident or illness.
We also support children and families in their own communities, through our brain injury specialist service based in the UK's paediatric major trauma centres, our mobile brain injury community team and our online information and advice services.
Project HOPE UK's passion for the health of the world's most vulnerable children is only equalled by its belief in the power of poor communities to transform themselves and, when given the right support, to achieve improvements that will reach into future generations.
Munsieville, in South Africa, brings that passion and belief together in an increasingly influential ten-year project that is impacting almost 11,000 orphans and other vulnerable children. It empowers community members to engage in collective action to address all the causes of poor health in children, including poverty, abuse and poor education. Support from the Property Race Day means that a purpose-build Early Years Health and Education.
SOS CHILDREN'S VILLAGES
SOS Children is a global charity which provides orphans and vulnerable children with a stable and positive family life. We protect and improve the lives of children in 125 countries, working with communities to keep fragmenting families together, and where this is not possible, building new families for children at risk.
Working together with local people and organisations, we identify needs and provide practical and emotional tools for parents and guardians to prevent family breakdown and child abandonment. With a focus on long-term sustainability, we empower caregivers to reach their potential, move towards financial independence and break the cycle of poverty.
LandAid works to improve the lives of children and young people in the UK who experience disadvantage due to their economic or social circumstances. As a charitable foundation supported by the property industry, LandAid finds ways to apply the generosity and expertise of the industry to this cause.
Thanks to the collective action of over 100 companies and thousands of individuals in the property industry, we invest over £1m each year in charities which support the most vulnerable young people, giving money and expertise to help them improve their buildings and spaces, and as a result expand their reach.
