How long has UHTf been in existence?
The original UHT (United Humanitarian Trust) was conceived as an entity 18 years ago and was launched publicly as a non-profit organisation in January 2015, as UHTf (United Humanitarian Trust foundation). Many years have gone into its planning and development.

Where is UHTf’s headquarters? Why was this location chosen?
UHTf is headquartered in New Cairo, Egypt and also in Accompong, Jamaica. The Accompong location was selected since it is the site for UHTf’s first pilot project.

How is UHT funded?
UHT is funded by trading partners and commodities.

How does UHTf decide which locations to operate in?
UHTf considers applications from all over the world; in particular, disadvantaged regions and areas where it can make a difference to peoples’ lives in terms of food production, clean energy technologies and water. 

UHTf will conduct ongoing surveys to ascertain the major needs in particular areas. Once selected, the project operates according to local protocols and laws. 

I have an idea for starting a sustainable project. Can I apply to UHTf for funding?
No, unfortunately not. The UHTf is not a private lender or a venture capitalist organisation. 

However, an existing NGO, CBO or Civil Society could partner with UHTf if there is an existing sustainable project that fits in the UHTf’s basic criteria. Or, the organisation can submit the project through their Government, and encourage a public private partnership with UHTf, as the funding agent.

It works directly with the governments, provinces, councils and registered bodies of the applicable areas to help bring about meaningful change in the fields of food and food production, clean energy, and water. It also develops close relationships in the fields of arts, culture and sport.

Who are the friends of UHTf?
Anyone or any organisation that is proactively willing to help a Nation and its people’s ongoing survival is a friend of the UHTf.

What is UHTf’s political stance?
UHTf does not have one. It is “A”political.

Its members come from all different political leans; however, the UHTf is there to support the government and the administration of the day.

What is UHTf’s religious stance?
UHTf does not have one. It is “A” religious.

UHTf welcomes men and women of all religious denominations. Its members also come from all different religions and belief systems. UHTf expects all its members and co-venture partners to respect the religious beliefs of others at all times. UHTf expects all religions and belief systems in turn to be proactive towards survival tendencies.

How does UHTf address different cultural issues?
UHTf will work with any culture and will work within the cultural boundaries of that culture in question. 

Will UHTf have offices available in every country wherever it is operating?
Yes, eventually. Right now UHT is setting up three main Continental Regional Offices in Jamaica, Egypt and Australia. These regional Continental offices will then be responsible for the ongoing establishment of offices and staff in other countries, (applicable to the laws and protocols of that region).

By watching the media section on our website and keeping up to date with its announcements, one will be kept up to date on the UHTf’s ongoing expansion plans and progress.

UHTf also understands that like Rome, nothing can be built in seven days. Progress will be along a well mapped out and project managed road.

How does UHTf view the corporations in society?
UHTf believes that everyone and every organisation have a part to play in society and so it is with the corporations. 

UHTf hopes and believes that the corporations will also play a part in the social reform of a Nation and its people. Thus, any corporation that is willing to do that is welcome to work with and alongside UHTf in its endeavors to help bring about a better world.

How does UHTf view other NGO’s?
