Charitable aims

The Watling Ubuntu Foundation is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), established in 2013.

“Charitable incorporated organisations are like companies in that they have the same legal status as a person. This means they can enter into contracts in their own name and their trustees normally have limited or no liability for the charity’s debts. However, they are not companies and do not have to register with Companies House.”

We aim to give people the opportunity to broaden horizons through the development of friendships with people of different cultural backgrounds, and to support and educate overseas students by enhancing their understanding and experience of British society.
