Mapco Foundation established
The vision for Mapco Group is to be more than a successful trading business. The Group have just established the Mapco Foundation, a charitable trust working with the less well off in Africa. By helping Africans establish self-sustaining businesses the Foundation hopes to help build communities and lives.
In establishing the Mapco Foundation we are taking practical help one step further. It’s difficult to stand by and do nothing when you see other human beings struggle to make a life. In some small way we hope to work with local African people and to help them to help themselves.
