Empowering Positive Social Change
Through Education, Collaboration & Action.
Prospero World is a Registered UK Charity (1163952) aiming to empower positive change through education, collaboration, and action. We do this by teaming with other groups and individuals, by producing events, presenting research on exceptional established and emerging charities and building networks to support charitable giving and philanthropy.
We were founded in 2007 and since then we have worked throughout Africa, India, South East Asia and the Middle East. Today, with over a decade's worth of research and experience informing our work, we are committed to strengthening the charitable sector through our Fiscal Sponsorship Programme.
The humanitarian needs in Ukraine have risen to unprecedented levels, following the Russian invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022. The main humanitarian needs in country are food, access to water, health, shelter, sleeping equipment and clothing, and protection.
We are supporting those in Ukraine with medical aid and relief, and also working with our Adopted Charity Phoenix Space to support refugees fleeing the war.
Following a rigorous application and due diligence process over several months, Prospero World is delighted to announce the addition of two outstanding organisations to our family of Adopted Charities. Congratulations to the Klitschko Foundation in the Ukraine, and Phare Ponleu Selpak in Cambodia. Welcome aboard!
We greatly look forward to bringing them to the attention of British supporters.
The scenes of suffering in India are difficult to digest. Behind the statistics are the human faces of sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters.
Our Adopted Charity Ek Tara, work in two of Kolkata’s largest slum communities where they have set up a series of emergency response programmes to support these extremely vulnerable communities.
The presents that we give are all the more powerful if they support and nourish others. At Prospero we have been working hard to inspire and create personalised presents that are truly wanted and that truly make a difference.
Our Fiscal Sponsorship Programme, which we fondly call Charity Adoption, supports projects that lack the time and resources to set up and manage their own UK registered charity. We also strengthen the work of charitable organisations or projects who do not have the ability to accept charitable donations from British supporters, in a tax-efficient manner.
Our adoption scheme is tailor-made to enable projects to focus on the causes they care most about, without needing to worry about the administration and governance involved in running a UK registered charity.
Prospero World is always on the look-out for new projects that pioneer the use of the Arts for Social Change. We are inspired by the idea of addressing the problems of our time through the exchange of knowledge, by developing thoughts and challenging existing perspectives.
Accordingly, our In The Spotlight series is inspired by the remarkable individuals and organisations we meet along the way and is shared here to provide a flavour of our research.
