The Pharo Foundation is a private foundation 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 since its establishment. Our projects contribute towards increasing access to education, agriculture, health, and water, and help improve people’s livelihoods.
In 2016, the Foundation made a strategic shift to directly design and implement its own programmes to ensure greater engagement with communities, better results and increased accountability. Since early 2019, the Foundation has also been focusing on establishing social enterprises with the objective of job creation.
Headquarted in the UK, we currently have offices in Ethiopia, Somaliland, and Kenya, with plans to expand into other African countries in the coming years. Our teams work closely with a range of partners including national and regional governments, research and academic institutes and the private sector.
