About Us

Behind the Scenes

LeNoir Foundation was created exclusively for charitable purposes. We are specifically focused on providing relief to poor, distressed, and underprivileged individuals residing in Zimbabwe and India by developing academic scholarships and educational programs. We work towards ensuring each child has an opportunity to excel and reach their highest potential by broadening their horizons with knowledge. We hope to empower their lives and outlooks positively so that they can go on to make the world a better place. Our volunteers are the essential component of this by enabling us to do this.


Our mission is to facilitate education to 10 children per year from communities in Uganda and India. Therefore giving them the opportunity to become young adults, parents and leaders who bring lasting and positive change in their communities.


To create a world in which children realize their rights and achieve their potential, regardless of their socioeconomic status, race or gender.

What we do

We created LeNoir Foundation as we saw a gap in support for primary school education in developing countries. We provide financial support and mentorship to each student through our board members, mentors and ambassadors. Our programme is a fantastic & rewarding way to directly help a child get a head-start in life. Each of the children selected for sponsorship meets strict criteria and are known personally to our teams in Uganda and Zimbabwe.
