Rainbows4children is an independent foundation set up in memory of Nicolas Robinson (son of the founder) and provides education for disadvantaged children in Ethiopia – primarily the children of adults with disabilities such as loss of limbs and blindness.
100% of donations go directly to the educational projects. This is made possible because all the administration work is carried out entirely by unpaid volunteers.
The patron of Rainbows4children is the renowned BBC journalist, Michael Buerk.
The Foundation is registered in Switzerland no:
CH-130.7.009.779-5 and founded in 2004
Rainbows4Children is registered in the UK with The Charity Commission (no.1116387), founded in 2005
