The funding provided by the Vital Foundation will support these organisations to collectively offer shelter, counselling, medical assistance, awareness and education programmes, legal services and skills training to women who have been abused.

The Vital Foundation watches the progress of projects or services of the organisations that were funded with keen interest.  Although we are not always able to provide full funding for services or projects, we believe that our contribution will make a meaningful difference to ensure continued initiatives that aim to eradicate the abuse of women and children.

The organisations funded by the Vital Foundation are required to provide funding reports of their progress and achievements online against their planned activities.
