New community learning centre in Nepal: In conjunction with British-Nepali charity Pipal Tree we are building a community learning centre in one of the very poorest regions of Nepal.

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 almost £1,000,000 and have built, equipped and staffed three Early Childhood Development Centres (ECDCs) and three libraries, renovated and stocked a fourth library and rebuilt a school destroyed in the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal; built five primary schools and a library and provided clean drinking water for twelve schools in Cambodia and funded 33 marine conservations internships for academically gifted students in Indonesia.

We are currently raising funds for a new library and a community learning centre in Nepal, to sustain our existing projects in Nepal and Cambodia and for next year's marine conservation internship programme in Indonesia.

Guy's Trust has eight trustees and is run entirely by volunteers with very few administrative costs.
