About Us.

FutureSense Foundation in an International development charity that supports disadvantaged communities in developing countries to build a better future. The charity is looking for up to three new trustees to expand and strengthen its Board.

Based in Newbury Berkshire, the charity works across 6 countries, running programmes to enhance the quality of education and learning, health, and livelihoods of local communities. The new trustees will bring skills and experience in fundraising, digital marketing and/or international programmes and will play a pivotal role in guiding the charity, setting the strategic direction of the organisation, as well as supporting the management team as it enters the next phase of growth.

The charity has a growing presence of volunteers and fundraisers in the UK and Australia, to support established hubs in Cambodia, Thailand, Peru, India, Nepal and Tanzania with local teams in each country. These local teams build strong connections within the community to enable the charity to understand the local development issues and challenges people face so the local team can work to the needs of the community. All programmes are delivered with local partners with the aim of helping to achieve the UN Goals for Sustainable Development.
