We have a longstanding belief that we should give back
That’s why we established the Flow Traders Foundation, an organization with a mission to fight poverty.
Our approach is to help families and individuals living under the poverty line
The Foundation is focused on supporting people below the poverty line with a purpose to improve and protect their well-being. We do this by providing direct aid (goods), granting microcredits and supporting organizations with our in-house business expertise.
We want to contribute to structurally reducing poverty and believe education is key to break the cycle. In order to achieve this, we look for and work on projects that offer long-term solutions and support in offering education for all.
