• The Pharo Foundation is a private organisation based in the United Kingdom and established in 2011. Committed to the development of Africa, the Foundation has been supporting projects in the Horn of Africa to help improve people’s livelihoods with an emphasis on economic self-reliance and job creation. Our projects contribute towards increasing access to education, agriculture, health, and water, and help improve people’s livelihoods.

    The Foundation is currently working in Somaliland, Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Kenya, which serves as the regional hub. We are passionate about creating impact and transformational change in our countries of operation. Our focus is on long-term development work rather than short-term humanitarian relief. We strive towards excellence through dedicated teamwork and integrated holistic programmes.
