About us

For many years now, private foundations have been muscling their way to the global development table - and they’re getting stronger. In fact, private foundations are playing an increasingly prominent role both in the scale of their giving and in their ability to set the agenda in international development.

The Dalda Foundation Trust (DFT) is an independent, non-profit organization who support and initiate projects related to health and education. We aim to make the world a healthier & educated place. DFT encourages and enables meaningful and executable innovation that aims to address existing and ensuing healthcare dynamics through communication, education, training, symposia, reports, and research. DFT creates a unique opportunity to address and improve healthcare & educational value, which we view as a function of quality, access, and cost.
