Orskov Foundation

The Orskov Foundation promotes sustainable development for the poorest rural communities in the world. We aim to achieve this through the integration of agricultural education with community projects. The resultant sharing of knowledge, experience and information will be key factors to enable people and communities to find their own solutions to the complex problems they face and move towards self-sufficiency on their own terms. The Orskov Foundation supports both individual students and a programme of community projects. Each of the community projects funded by the Orskov Foundation is set up through the use of a revolving-fund. This is a simple method of providing a community with access to affordable credit to buy what they deem to be most useful and then pay back to the community to enable others to benefit. Each project, its goals and management, is set up in partnership with the active participation of the community groups involved.
