POST’s mission is to help the poorest people of the world to help themselves to a better standard of living by funding small-scale self-generating projects. Projects that we have helped to fund in the past have mostly been in the categories of agriculture, health/sociology and education.

POST seeks to increase awareness in the Purley and District area of the problems of deprivation in developing countries, and to alleviate them by supporting small-scale projects which allow the people there to help themselves. Since POST was formed in 1984 over £230,000 has been collected and spent on a variety of projects in many parts of the world. Often POST works with organisations which are on the spot such as Sight SaversSOS Sahel and Water Aid, but POST also supports individual projects in Agriculture, Medicine, Education and Sociology. 

Purley OverSeas Trust is a Registered Charity with the UK Charity Commission – Registered Charity Number: 291140.
