Find, help, and empower people in need
Projects are the foundation of Philanthropy Connections. We take a two-step approach to our project involvement. First, we seek out community-driven initiatives started by local people to benefit their communities and improve their quality of life. Second, we connect these projects with sponsors willing to fund these activities.
Philanthropy Connections was founded to find and help people in need. It is the common thread in all we do. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we work to positively change the lives of the less fortunate. Those who we assist, find strength in the fact that people like you, our sponsors, help them to build a better future.
You can either become a sponsor, or a donor. Sponsors choose to financially underwrite an entire project, and donors choose to contribute to help sustain our operations, as well as help fund our projects as needed. Sponsors and donors can be individuals, families, organisations, or businesses.

Happiness is an intriguing concept when you start to try to define it. Since 2013 the UN has consistently refined and improved their measurements and metrics, each time getting closer to a better definition.
And guess what? One of the key components is altruism. It could be donations, volunteering or just plain helping someone else without expecting anything in return.
So, go help someone! Make your life happier, and improve someone else’s.

Two days ago our project team, led by Acharee Hughes, introduced PCF to 57 third-year students in the ASEAN Studies Programme at the Department of Social Science and Development, Faculty of Social Science, Chiang Mai University.
During the presentation, she shared what PCF does, including our approach to project implementation and the positive outcomes that we have achieved. These factors are essential to improving the situations of vulnerable people.
We were delighted with the interest and engagement the students expressed and enjoyed this opportunity to connect with such a passionate group of young people. We can not wait to see the incredible impact they will make in the future.

Actually, I never really related to development work, because I don’t like big, complex organisations. That’s the beauty of Philanthropy Connections: you know exactly what your money is used for.
Read more from Catherine here.
I have seen a lot of development work where question marks can be placed with the usefulness and effectiveness, but Sallo and his organisation I trust unconditionally. He lives a simple life, close to the source and his support stems from respect, not from pity. That’s how it should be.
I support Philanthropy Connections because it is Sallo’s project. He knows to move mountains with few resources and has the talent to bring people together; a unique combination to efficiently and effectively match means with needs.
With my family I visited several projects with Philanthropy Connections in 2011 and I was instantly convinced. It is so evident that this is right! What they do really works.
Completely selfless and at very meagre wage, Sallo helps hundreds, if not thousands of youngsters to a better existence. At a modest, but on an ever growing scale, straightforward and with integrity. That deserves support.
As precise and dedicated Sallo used to be as a floor manager, that’s exactly how he is here. Wonderful work and keeps at it until the job’s done. That’s what I love.
