Who we are

The Community Chest’s vision of a country where all individuals and families reach their human potential is based on the fundamentality of access to Health, Education, Income-Generation and Community Development. These 4 key strategic focus areas facilitate social change to inspire a citizenship that is active, engaged and impactful.
