The Prax Foundation, Roots, was formally established as a UK charity in 2010 by the founders of the Prax Group, a British multinational energy company – the name having been inspired by the fact that their roots are in Sri Lanka, and the charity’s first projects are based there.
The Prax Group is the donor to the Foundation. The charity is run on a zero-cost basis, with every dollar that the Group donates going directly to Roots. The trustees’ objectives are to:
- Raise funds for the Foundation
- Make sure these funds are used wisely
- Relieve poverty and sickness
- Advance the education of girls in particular, and children in general
