Guy’s Trust was established in January 2012 to honour the memory of Guy Joseph, marine biologist, scuba instructor, paraglider and all-round adventurer, who died, aged 25, in a paragliding accident in Spain on 14th October 2011.
Guy’s Trust supports projects that reflect Guy’s interests, passions and personality, creating educational opportunities for disadvantaged young people in developing countries, particularly places with which he had a special connection.

Since Guy’s Trust was founded in 2012, we have raised over £450,000 to build, equip and staff three Early Childhood Development Centres and a library, renovate and stock a second library and rebuild a school destroyed in the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal; build three primary schools in Cambodia and fund twentyfive marine conservations internships for academically gifted students in Indonesia.
We are currently raising funds for a fourth and fifth primary school in Cambodia, and for next year’s marine conservation internships.
We couldn’t do it without you!
Guy’s Trust has eight trustees and is run entirely by volunteers with minimal administrative costs*. * Our main partner ActionAid takes 4% to cover the administrative costs of working with Guy’s Trust.
