The Trust was set up by Saga holidaymakers with the aim to to invest in sustainable projects that will empower and support local communities into the future. The Trust believes passionately in giving something back to communities in developing countries that welcome Saga guests. They do this by supporting projects that bring health and welfare benefits, provide skills and opportunities for communities to become self sufficient, and ultimately help to break the cycle of poverty. By working closely with local communities the Trust is able to identify programmes that will make a real and sustainable difference. The Trust funds four key areas: (1) education; (2) training; (3) health care; and (4) income generation and has since its set up in 1985 supported a variety of projects in 17 countries across 5 continents.
Eligible are non-profit organisations. Projects must (1)be at destinations operated by Saga in developing countries, (2) be sustainable, (3) have a responsible local sponsor to oversee the project and account for the allocation of funds, (4) benefit disadvantaged communities and (5) be accessible to Saga guests where possible.
Saga Charitable Trust operates in developing countries that host Saga holidaymakers.
