Sustain for Life is a group of non-governmental, not-for-profit entities supporting projects internationally in order to empower people to create sustainable livelihoods. The England and Wales entity has charitable status and is affiliated with Sustain for Life Italy – ONLUS, Sustain for Life Foundation Switzerland and Sustain for Life Charity in Uganda. Collectively, we help some of the poorest people on the planet to help themselves. Our underlying belief is that people benefit more from the opportunity to help themselves rather than simply relying on the donation of aid, and we aim to give people in need the initial means, knowledge and skills required to develop through their own efforts. Sustain for Life is independent, with no political or religious affiliations. As we believe that Every Penny Counts, 100% of all contributions from donors and partners go directly to our projects.
Our mission is to improve lives and reduce poverty by helping poor and marginalised people become sustainably self-sufficient. Our vision is for a world where even the poorest and most marginalised people have acquired the skills and means for a sustainable future.
100% of your donation to Sustain for Life directly benefits the people who need it the most. Every penny donated directly funds our projects with nothing used to pay for running costs. Our administration costs are paid personally by our Founder, Massimo Gini.
Our team is passionate about what we do and work together to improve the lives through our projects. We believe that it is our collective duty to help our fellow human beings, particularly the vulnerable and underprivileged, so hope that many others will join us in supporting projects.
Sustain for Life is a small, hands-on NGO with limited resources. We seek like-minded partners who share our practical approach and values to improve future opportunities for very poor, vulnerable and marginalised communities.
