Our Work

We work across three thematic areas: access to education, improving access to good quality education, healthcare and clean water and sanitation. Working in partnership with local government and grassroots organisations across these themes strengthens children’s ability to learn, promotes good health and well-being and strengthens resilience.

DATUM FOUNDATION supports communities to thrive, to live healthy and productive lives, to move out of poverty and contribute to their country’s economic growth.

Datum Foundation Education


In developing countries as much as 115 million children of primary school age are not enrolled in school. We build and improve schools, create libraries and provide new furniture and books.

Datum Foundation Healthcare


Millions of people must make the choice between low-quality healthcare or none at all. We work to ensure communities have access to the services they need.

Datum Foundation - Water & Sanitation

Water & Sanitation

Globally, 1 in 9 people still have no access to clean water. We help communities by installing new water supplies, toilets and handwashing facilities.
