Helping poor communities in Africa and the Middle
East to sustainably rise out of poverty
Principal Office: Geneva
The Addax and Oryx Foundation funds projects that are conducted by registered non-profit, non-governmental organisations with a proven experience and competence in the proposed area of activity, demonstrated budget efficiency and transparency in the use of funds, and contribute to the eradication of the root causes of poverty in Africa and the Middle East. Projects should focus on any of the Foundation’s four core areas (Health, Education, Community development, and the environment) while creating a sustainable and measurable impact for the most underprivileged populations, and ensuring sustainable development by building skills and empowerment in the long term. Preference is given to projects that cover two or more of its core areas, and to small organisations run by highly committed individuals who are directly involved in the projects they propose. Proposals are accepted all year round.
