Romilly’s Foundation is a charity registered with the Charity Commission of England and Wales, registration no. 1082605. It was set up in 2001 following Romilly’s death at the age of 14. It’s mission, together with Romilly’s Association in France, is to relief the suffering of children in distress in Africa .
Our emphasis is on helping homeless children. We identify local people with a plan who have the integrity though not the money to carry it out. Often by making an initial donation we have been able to encourage others to invest.
The trustees are Tim Drake, James Forshall, Tim James, David Jamieson, Joanna Kennedy, Jerry Rihll. They have a wide variety of backgrounds spanning business, the law and accountancy.
The Foundation currently supports two projects, The Naivasha Children’s Shelter in Kenya and the The Friends of the Street Children in Kitwe, (FOSC) which both do great work, caring for and educating homeless children. In addition to this FOSC identify and win the trust of vulnerable children, often persuading them to return to what family they have before they become embedded on the street. They also have a good record of reintegrating those children that they have taken into care with their families. The difference they and the Naivasha project make to lives of the children they care for is immeasurable; that they are able to continue to do this is due to the generosity of Romilly’s supporters
None of the contributions, which Romilly has made to the projects above, including building 3 dormitories, 2 class rooms and sinking 1 borehole, would have been possible with out the generosity of Romilly’s supporters, to whom we offer sincere thanks. You have made a huge difference to the lives of the children whom you have enabled Romilly to help.
