The B.K. Kee Foundation's Mission
The Foundation's mission is to provide humanitarian aid, primarily in health and education, to all people of Burma. The Foundation seeks to advance this mission by:
- Acting as a catalyst for self-sustaining programs;
- Emphasizing direct or local support and/or partnerships with, or grants to, organizations with minimal administrative cost structures;
- Not considering political, economic, or religious interests in assessing the people’s needs; and
- Identifying and concentrating on needs and projects that have historically not been the focus of other charities and organizations.
The Foundation prefers to provide seed money for programs with a clearly articulated plan for continuing its mission without indefinite financial support from the Foundation.
