Since inception, the focus has been on enabling children living in deprivation to escape the cycle of poverty and reach their potential in life. To this end, the Vitol Foundation supports projects that fall under four programme areas that are critical to a child's development: Health, â€˜WASH' (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene), Education and Livelihoods. It also responds to humanitarian emergencies with trusted partners.
The Vitol Foundation is a grant-making organisation. It view these as investments and looks for programmes with the potential to generate a social and economic return in a sustainable and scalable way. It supports initiatives globally and independently of business.
