Where We Work

The McConnell International Foundation primarily works in sub-Saharan Africa, with a particular focus on fragile and post-conflict states. However, as the Foundation grows, we will support operations elsewhere in the developing world.

Currently, we are supporting a pilot project that’s delivering skills training in Swaziland with Positive Women, and we have partnered with Peace Direct to fund a youth education and peacebuilding project in Burundi.

In this work we seek to engage young people from Scotland and, where possible, from elsewhere in the UK and EU.
