• "You have not only inspired me to help those who are disadvantaged but you have affected everything I do, from school to my personal life and to every decision I make. I believe this trip has changed me into a more outgoing and confident person.
    I now think more before I do things as I realise how important actions can be."
    Tommy Vickers
  • "I believe I grasped a unique experience in the course of 2 weeks, from learning how to use pick axes to being able to teach and control up to 50 children for 50 minutes and I learnt the art of working as a team. For you to offer such a heart-felt, life rocking experience to all of us I thank you so much as you have opened up all our eyes to reality." Katie Skilton
  • "This project has certainly opened my eyes. In my ignorance I thought that there would be a lot of despair in the townships (mainly due to Oxfam adverts). However, my view has changed completely as I saw people in the poverty trap alive with energy willing to better themselves." Raife Breton
  • "For me the project was a life changing experience. I set out on the experience unsure of what I could do, I was shy with no real confidence in any of my abilities so I was understandably scared that I was going to be useless to everyone on this trip, I was wrong." Atticus Kidd

Huckleberry Update

We are building our team for 2013 but the inaugural project left for South Africa on Sunday 15th July. To see the 2012 project blog please click on the Huckleberry Updates logo (you can alternatively click on the Tumblr logo at the top right of this page).

You can also follow us on Facebook or Twitter by liking and/or following Huckleberry Community (links to both of these are also at the top of the page) or connect with us on LinkedIn.

 

What we do

The Huckleberry Foundation seeks to provide inspirational and life-changing opportunities, experiences and training to young people in the UK whose circumstances would ordinarily make such possibilities forever out of reach.

 

How we do it

Working with indigenous charities and organisations in both the UK and deprived areas around the world the Huckleberry Foundation identifies potential development projects within disadvantaged schools and communities overseas. Once identified we then recruit a fully funded team of UK volunteers to lead and implement the bespoke capital projects and also deliver a wide variety of educational workshops. Everything we do is aimed at building lasting and mutually beneficial relationships between vastly different individuals and organisations so that we can achieve a level of sustainability that becomes as natural as that of childhood friends.

 

What makes us different

The Huckleberry Foundation works with Huckleberry Initiative to pioneer a new multi- targeted approach. By directly engaging different sectors of society with each other, in a manner that is mutually beneficial to all parties, we have developed a model of action that is not only beneficial in the short run but becomes increasingly rewarding and sustainable in the future.
