A message from Ben

As a child, I was fostered. As a child with a talent, it was somewhat  difficult to find the necessary resources to fulfil my potential. 

Extra curricular activities are expensive in every field; from coachings to transport to events to equipment.

In order to apply for charitable status, we need to generate turnover exceeding £5000pa. And this is where we require your help. In order to make a donation, please go to paypal.me/benthapafoundation 

In order to apply for funding, please email admin@benthapafoundation.com or complete the contact form below.

"Focus on the miniature mastery of your own happiness."
