Welcome to
The Beit Trust

Working for the benefit of the people in Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi



Grants are still occasionally given for very large new constructions, such as hospitals and schools. In general, however, most projects are chosen with the purpose of enhancing existing establishments or programmes, such as independent, rural or mission schools, hospitals and wildlife schemes.

Beit Scholarship Association (BSA)

Beit Scholars are special and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with one another. Once a Beit Scholar, always a Beit Scholar.  The Beit Scholarship Association (BSA) brings together present and former recipients of a Beit Scholarship.

We accordingly invite all Beit Scholars, from every era, to join the BSA Group on LinkedIn and/or Facebook.  Beit Scholars wishing to expand their knowledge base in particular academic or professional areas; to seek advice or help from those already established in their fields; or to begin or renew friendships or social contacts will find the BSA a helpful and welcoming forum.

For further information, please contact Ashleigh Mitchley, our Scholarship and Alumni Co-Ordinator, via email on scholarships@beittrust.org.uk.
