Our history

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.
