Historically, a substantial amount of money and resource have been spent purchasing products and tools for people who would seemingly benefit from them the most. And though this methodology has been to simply provide people with superficial needs, expecting that everything will resolve successfully, this methodology is flawed. It is understood that the basic elements for human survival must be met before any further progress can be made and, rightfully so, there are a number of great organizations who dedicate their time and resources in making sure these needs are met. However, our purpose is to unleash individual potential by removing the barriers which are responsible for hindering those from realizing their ability to achieve greatness.
The Andrew Forde Foundation runs under the belief that people are intrinsically granted with the necessary tools to help both themselves and their communities.

Regardless of the barrier, the Andrew Forde Foundation consists of a team of equipped professionals that are devoted to developing and providing a solution. We provide financial aid to those in need through grants, loans and scholarships. We offer workshops and seminars to help individuals understand themselves and their potential. For those who require help developing an idea, we offer assistance, counselling and aid in the initial steps of networking opportunities.
