  • Mission statement

    To provide sustainable aid to thousands around the world by removing all the administration costs that most charities charge.

    The world has never been as rich as it is today, yet over one billion people suffer from extreme poverty.

    The Lady Fatemah Trust is a non-profit, non-governmental and faith-based humanitarian organisation whose mission is to empower the world’s poorest to lift them out of poverty with dignity. We believe that the eradication of poverty is not only a matter of conscience; it is a prerequisite for the security and prosperity of humanity at large and that freedom from poverty is a fundamental human right.
    The charity’s primary purpose is to undertake manageable and sustainable projects that can make a real difference to individuals and communities, enabling them to improve their lives. We help people in need to reduce their dependence on humanitarian aid and facilitate their transition to sustainable self-reliant, long-term development.

    Across all of LFCTs programmes, the ethos of providing a hand up rather than a hand out is key and wherever possible the LFCT will support projects that enable beneficiaries to make step changes that lead to long term development.
