The Wyndham Charitable Trust is a small UK-based grant-making charity (registered number 259313), which is a member of Association of Charitable Foundations, and is regulated by The Charity Commission. It was established in 1969 with a settlement of £1 (yes, one GBP). The expense ratio of the Trust, genuinely, is NIL. Not one of the other 198,000 or so charities can improve on that!
One of the chief interests of the Trust is helping to bring about the elimination of modern-day slavery. Currently, about 27 million children, women and men are enslaved. They are held by force or threat of force, and are unable to escape.
This can range from girls and women being trafficked for forced prostitution to bonded labour where, from one generation to another, children are enslaved as a result of their parents' 'debts'. The leading agency in this field is the old-established charity Anti-Slavery International.
