Redbus is committed to being a responsible and generous corporate citizen.
We are very serious about playing our part in making the world a healthier, more educated and happier place. As part of this commitment, a meaningful percentage of the profits generated by Redbus are donated to charitable endeavours through our sister organization theFFF.org. Established in 2006 the FFF is a UK-based charitable foundation. Redbus provides both financial and logistical support to the FFF.
The FFF has a unique way of operating. It is both entrepreneurial and innovative in its approach to philanthropy and problem-solving and helps address complex social problems by targeted initiatives, partnering and mentoring the best-in-class local NGOs, and helping them coordinate their activities with other partners.
The FFF aims to equip young people to become change-makers and civil society leaders in their respective countries. Whether it is through its New Generation Schools program or its health, teacher training or scholarship programs, The FFF believes that fostering a dynamic civil society is one of the most important ways philanthropic organizations can engender real, systemic and progressive change in the world’s poorest countries. It helps address complex social problems by targeted initiatives, partnering and mentoring the best-in-class local NGOs, and helping them coordinate their activities with other partners. By creating, developing and supporting partnership projects the FFF helps provide some of the world’s poorest children with the educational, healthcare and pastoral support required for them to maximize their full potential.
The FFF is not a typical foundation or donor. It is an active donor that engages fully with partners, providing funding, but also strategic and business management support and access to its extensive networks. The FFF does not fund organizations, it funds projects. In some cases, the FFF themselves are the implementer fully managing and funding projects on the ground.
