The Pharo Foundation
We established The Pharo Foundation because of our passion for Africa’s potential to create thriving economies and to prosper.
Since our establishment in 2011, we have granted US$6.2 million to more than 30 projects primarily in Ethiopia, Somaliland/Somalia and South Sudan.
The Pharo Foundation is headquartered in London and we have offices in Addis Ababa, Hargeisa and in other towns near our programme areas.
As per our new strategy and operational modality, we will lead the design and implementation of large-scale integrated livelihoods programmes initially in Ethiopia and Somaliland.
The Pharo Foundation developed an ambitious five-year (2016-2020) strategy with the objective of significantly improving the income and livelihoods of 30,000 households in Africa.
We will achieve our strategic objective through the following four specific objectives:
- To increase agricultural productivity by at least 50% for 30,000 households.
- To improve access to water to national standards for 30,000 households.
- To improve access to priority basic services as identified by each programme partner community.
- To continuously enhance our and our partners’ impact and programme effectiveness.
