Guy’s Trust was established in January 2012 to honour the memory of Guy Joseph, marine biologist, scuba instructor, paraglider and all-round adventurer, who died, aged 25, in a paragliding accident in Spain on 14th October 2011.
Guy’s Trust supports projects that reflect Guy’s interests, passions and personality, creating educational opportunities for disadvantaged young people in developing countries, particularly places with which he had a special connection.

Since Guy’s Trust was founded in 2012, we have raised over £350,000; built, equipped and staffed three Early Childhood Development Centres, renovated and stocked a library and started to rebuild a school destroyed in the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal; and funded sixteen marine conservations internships for academically gifted students in Indonesia.
We are currently raising funds to expand support for the four communities in Nepal, for next year’s marine conservation internships and to start building two primary schools in Cambodia.
We couldn’t do it without you!
Guy’s Trust has seven trustees and is run entirely by volunteers with minimal administrative costs*. * Our partner ActionAid takes 4% to cover the administrative costs of working with Guy’s Trust.
