Angus Gillis Foundation

Help shift communities from poor health and well-being to one of increased strength and self-sufficiency using an integrated social development model. We work through a social development perspective where people are the masters of their own destiny. We don't give handouts. We work with the development and empowerment of individuals, groups and communities, teaching them to be self-reliant. We believe that this is the best way to combat the socio-economic challenges facing the country.
