The Allen Foundation

The Allen Foundation a 501c3 non-profit was formed in 2001 to assist women and children in need in lesser developing areas. It is staffed and directed by a committed group of volunteers along with local assistance and management at the grass roots level.




All funds received by The Allen Foundation are 100% used in the accomplishment of our mission statement.
All Board Members and staff are volunteers. Apart from any expenses such as shipping items and bank charges for fund transfers all donations are used for Board approved programs or projects, either put of general funds or specific project funds.
We use local on-site experts as well as our personal knowledge of the area and the most important needs and ways that the funds can be best utilized.
We do not receive any government funds, we are strictly donation funded and your generosity is greatly appreciated by us all.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email or call us.




While education through primary school is free in East Africa, there are mandatory items that families must provide; such as uniforms, school items, payment of fees to take exams, to name a few. This is mostly beyond the normal family’s ability especially if there are several children; therefore, many drop out, leaving them with marginal education. It is the Foundation’s wish to fund as many children possible through primary school, at the least, and then through secondary school.

In Uganda the price for a year at school, including supplies and uniforms is $160.00 and a little bit more for upper grades and dependent on whether the child has to board at the school. Your donation of less than 50 cents per day can do this. Imagine a semester’s worth of education for the cost of 4 lattes - that makes it real to us doesn’t it?

We know times are hard for us all but ask that you can find it in your heart to make a donation to provide a needy child with a chance for the future. These children are committed to education - they know it is the way out of poverty!

Girls at Narozari Rural School, Uganda
"educate a girl and you educate a village"

There is a dilapidated building at the Narozari Rural School: over 95 years old. It obviously needs rebuilding to make it habitable for girls attending the school to Board so as not to have to travel long distances daily through the unsafe jungle. The Foundation is starting a fundraiser to obtain match grants to remodel the building and provide beds and necessary items for the girls comfort. The projected fundraising of US$15,000 completion is set for December 2021 so that the facility can be remodelled over the school holidays. 
Donations can be made through Paypal

All donations are IRS tax deductible.



On top of school supplies, parents are required to pay “donations” to the school for such things as the building, exam fees, desks and other costs. All these add-ons add up when you make US$1 a day and have to decide on priorities. Many girls don’t get to go to school and many drop out where the family cannot afford fees and decisions about what child goes to school has to be made.

Through our sewing project we are providing sewing training and a machine to the Narozari Rural School in an effort to not only teach a skill but to provide affordable school uniforms for students.

Free Dental Clinic , Bali, Indonesia

A lady dentist in Bali provides free dental care to the poor from her living room.  We have been assisting through direct donations to provide the means for her to purchase dental equipment to help the very poor. The cash donations have been taken to Bali by two Directors of the Board twice a year, at which time purchases are made for equipment needed. The Foundation donates AU$500 each year to assist this Free Dental Clinic.

If your own friendly dentist has outdated dental tools which can be sent to this little clinic please call or email us   IT IS DESPERATELY NEEDED.


 In February 2019 we visited the school and looked over this building. The local people believe they can rebuild it. In the US it would be tagged "condemed". There is no dormitory facilities at the Narozari Rural School, so children walk kilometers through the jungle to get to school, after they do their ome chores.
