Innovative projects aimed at alleviating poverty
The Bill Crews Charitable Trust exists to encourage and develop new and innovative projects aimed at alleviating poverty. The Trust is locally and intentionally entrepreneurial, established both in Australia and in Hong Kong.
The Bill Crews Charitable Trust encourages, supports, finances, resources and develops means of tackling local community needs at an international level. The Trust works largely in developing countries in close partnership with those “social entrepreneurs” making positive change through their hands-on work supporting local people.
By supporting these people The Bill Crews Charitable Trust aims to break the nexus of the risk adverse nature of many charitable institutions and the way that nature can stifle entrepreneurship. Through encouraging and fostering entrepreneurship at the local level entire communities can be changed.
“Many people hear the cry of the oppressed or marginalised yet don’t know what to do about it. By engaging with The Bill Crews Charitable Trust you can make a meaningful difference”, said Rev. Crews.
The Bill Crews Charitable Trust works across borders and faiths and in doing so recognises the importance of local culture in breaking the poverty cycle.
A new approach is needed
Encouraging and fostering entrepreneurship at the local level to change entire communities
The need to respond quickly to situations of social need around the world is critical. Human misery and death can be minimised if responses to natural disasters and man-made emergencies is fast.
Large non-government organisations can be slow to respond, however The Bill Crews Charitable Trust is nimble enough to allow rapid deployment of resources to isolated regions where the need is often greatest. The Trust cuts through bureaucracy, identify needs, marshals resources and delivers positive results for local communities.
