British Asian Trust
Unlocking potential across South Asia: where 750 million people are currently living on less than US$2.5 a day.
The British Asian Trust supports the development of a South Asia that is free from inequality and injustice.
We were founded in 2007 by HRH The Prince of Wales and a group of visionary British Asian business leaders. We back sustainable solutions that enable people to truly unlock their potential and have already touched the lives of more than 4 million people.
By enabling our supporters to turn their values into action, we transform lives. Together we will support a South Asia that is better for all.
Addressing key challenges. Spotlighting urgent, hidden issues.
Through cause-focused funds, we bring together core investments and key stakeholders. This brings greater impact for both disadvantaged communities and donors. To ensure your donations make the most impact, we work through local non-governmental organisations. Each one has a proven track record, and all are selected with rigorous due diligence.
About the British Asian Trust
There is immense need in South Asia, which is home to 20% of the world’s population and 50% of the world’s poorest people. Almost 750 million people living there are surviving on less than US$2.5 a day.
The sheer scale of the challenge demands a holistic approach. Our aim is to achieve greater impact for disadvantaged communities by working with others who are passionate about supporting people in South Asia.
Through research, we identify the most urgent issues, together with innovative, high-impact, scalable solutions. We provide thought-leadership and help supporters see where they can have the most impact.
We galvanise multiple stakeholders to form powerful alliances, bringing together vital funds, skills and influence. By mobilising collective action, we ensure the whole solution is greater than the sum of its parts.
We spotlight uncomfortable and taboo issues. We amplify the voices of the most marginalised and vulnerable people to inspire high-impact action.
“I am pleased to lend my name and my support to The British Asian Trust and its work with the most vulnerable people in South Asia and the UK. Building self-sufficiency in poor communities is a proven and effective way to combat poverty.”See all our Ambassadors
HRH The Prince of Wales
HRH The Prince of Wales founded the British Asian Trust in 2007 to do something about the widespread poverty and hardship that he saw in South Asia. He turned to the entrepreneurial spirit of the British Asian diaspora, aiming to link them with innovative social entrepreneurs and grassroots interventions in the region.See all our Ambassadors
