Supporters of The British Asian Trust attended a dinner hosted by HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall at Buckingham Palace on 3 February for The Prince’s Charities.
HRH The Prince of Wales thanked supporters at the dinner for their contribution to The Prince’s Charities, including the Trust.
The British Asian Trust was founded by a group of business leaders at the suggestion of HRH The Prince of Wales who serves as President. The Prince’s Charities is a group of not-for-profit organisations of which The Prince of Wales is President. Eighteen of the 20 charities were founded personally by The Prince. The group is the largest multi-cause charitable enterprise in the United Kingdom, raising over £100 million annually. The organisations are active across a broad range of areas including opportunity and enterprise, the built environment, responsible business, education and health. The charities reflect The Prince of Wales’s long-term and innovative perspective, and seek to address areas of previously unmet need.
The British Asian Trust is the only one of The Prince’s Charities that focuses on critical needs in South Asia. The Trust is bringing about lasting change in partnership with 11 high-impact charities building self-sufficiency in disadvantaged communities through education, health and livelihoods.
