The Trafigura Foundation sponsors a range of philanthropic programmes around the world that are active in the areas of sustainable development, education & integration, and health. These three fields of development are interdependent, mutually reinforcing, and reflect our objectives for the Foundation and our vision for a better world.

The Foundation does not simply provide financial assistance. We take a long-term view and forge a partnership for each project: we lend our expertise, coach and advise staff, make regular field visits, and generally get involved for a minimum of three years.

This approach explains our tagline, ‘Just add Vision’. Our contribution, as well as economic, is to provide that added ‘extra’ that helps to bring people together at the right time and get things moving. We harness the dynamism of our parent company and apply this energy and innovation to the Foundation’s own model of giving.
