The trustees of Viaduct Foundation agreed that for 2022 and onward the majority of our gifts to qualified donees will go to the registered charity, TIES (officially Viaduct Technology In Education Society). In 2022, additional funding was provided to TIES and they recently provided their Impact Report summarizing the success of their projects during the year. You may visit the TIES website to read the Impact Report.
Funding for TIES will continue in 2023. The TIES initiatives in 2023 include:
- Due to the success of the Kenya University Scholarships pilot project, the program is now permanent. (https://ties.charity/projects/kenya-university-scholarships/)
- TIES is expanding an expanded Sierra Leone Afterschool Program by CAUSE Canada. (https://ties.charity/projects/sierra-leone-afterschool-project/)
- Our funding for the the TIES Ak’ Tenamit High School Scholarships program is ongoing. (https://ties.charity/projects/ak-tenamit-high-school-scholarships/)
From the TIES website:
Our projects are run in the least developed countries of the world in order that donations will have the maximum impact. “Least developed” means the bottom third of the countries in the world by Purchasing Power Parity, and preferably countries among those with the highest Fragile States Index.
