Welcome to The Orskov Foundation
The Orskov Foundation promotes sustainable development through helping people and communities to find their own solutions to the complex problems they face and move towards self-sufficiency on their own terms. We help individual students with funding to cover training needs and support a focussed programme of community projects in Malawi, Rwanda, Indonesia, and Cambodia. Each of the community projects we have funded has been set up using a revolving-fund. This is a simple method of providing access to affordable credit to buy what the communities deem to be most useful. When they are able they then pay back to the fund to enable others to benefit. Each project, its goals and management, is set up in partnership with the active participation of the community groups involved to provide solutions to issues of food and environmental security.
