Projects /About The Amarone Charitable Trust
The Amarone Charitable Trust was established in 2014 with the aim to find solutions and provide assistance for needs that weren’t being met in the global community, with a specific focus on Barbados.
We work with leading organisations and partners to fund and support charitable initiatives specifically within the pillars of athletics, children and disaster relief. Our goals are as follows:
We believe that every amateur athlete has the right to be the best that he or she can be despite their circumstances. We believe that every child has the right to education, food access and basic healthcare. We believe that every individual should be able to comfortably continue their life after being affected by a natural disaster. We believe there is space for all of us to thrive. As our acronym says, we support individuals and charitable causes that want to act and fill needs that are not being met currently.
We believe in addressing needs within communities that are not currently being met. While we usually focus on our three pillars,we are not limited to these areas to provide assistance.
We believe in the power of having local impact and work directly with organisations or individuals who are deeply connected within their communities. We also work with big charitable organisations to create lasting change in countries.
ACT supports and funds charitable initiatives within the three pillars of Athletics, Children and Disaster Relief. These pillars are not mutually exclusive and often overlap with each other. The support of the ACT is not limited to these three pillars as its aim is to lend a hand with any need that isn’t currently being met. As of early 2020, the ACT has funded over 20 different projects.
Fight N Fit proposes to launch an After-School Boxing Program. It is our belief that a program of this kind will provide an outlet to engage and advocate for increased physical activity in the youth,
Within this pillar we have looked to fill a need, which has been to provide funding for athletes that will provide them access to additional training, access to high level coaches
During 2016 the trust approached UNICEF in Switzerland to collaborate on implementing an initiative to assist children in need, be it Syria, Yemen or in other places such as Nepal, which is still suffering from the earthquakes of 2015.
