Simmons Grants are available to overseas projects that enable rural young people to become self-sufficient or for other similar educational purposes.


A small number of grants in the region of £1,000 to £1,500 are made annually to projects that work to enable rural young people overseas to live self-sufficiently.

Requests for grants should come from the organisation managing the project, with evidence of active Quaker support. The organisation need not be Quaker-run, but projects supported should operate within appropriate principles including financial and environmental sustainability.
