In the Community

The community focus of the Kusuma Trust stems from the founders firm belief in the notion that charity begins at home. Soma Pujari and her husband Anurag moved to Gibraltar in 2004 and have since supported a number of highly regarded community-based projects including a rehabilitation centre, a women’s refuge, a Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre, and a new extension for St Martins special needs School. It also aims to help  preserve and develop Gibraltar through its Infrastructural projects such as the rejuvenation of Europa Point  and by supporting such projects as the Commonwealth park to ensure an important recreational space is available to the community.

Kusuma’s educational development programme is growing from strength to strength, with its popular Science week which sees educators from the British Science Museum give a weeks’ worth of performances and workshops, as well as the Cambridge Mathematics Outreach Team and the new educational workshops to inspire coding.

Kusuma is especially interested in supporting training for Gibraltars NGOs so that they in turn can both take their project to a new level and spread their experience to new volunteers. 2013 saw the introduction of a coaching and mentoring award for charities which has been proven to be highly regarded.
We continue to play an active role in the community and continually re-evaluate our work to see  where  there is a role for us to support and enable beneficial community projects when it is needed.

We are always exploring new avenues to help and create opportunities for Gibraltar.
