To really understand transformational philanthropy at work I visit projects that are making a difference. From a school in a Refugee Camp on the Syrian Border, to post-natal classes in The Democratic Republic of Congo, a workshop in Glasgow helping people re-engage with society, to a centre supporting children who have lost parents through violence. I never cease to be amazed by the extraordinary commitment of people who are determined to make a change and the way clearly targeted interventions can make huge improvements in day-to-day lives.
