  • What we do


    We identify and enable Not for Profit Organisations (NPO’s) to reach more vulnerable children in Africa. We achieve this by helping to incubate, accelerate and scale NPO’s that restore hope and purpose for children in Africa.


    The Aslan Trust partners with committed individuals to enable them in establishing world class NPO’s that focus on:

    - Education

    - Healthcare

    - Family

    The Aslan Trust is a vehicle through which funds can be entrusted and applied effectively.
