Conceived in March 2019, and established in January 2020, the Perivoli Africa Research Centre (PARC) is funded by a generous gift from The Perivoli Foundation. The gift builds on the Foundation’s successful relationship with the University of Bristol over the past ten years, funding projects in a number of areas.

In addition to PARC, the Perivoli Foundation has a philanthropic focus in Africa, through the Perivoli Schools Trust, which supports early child care and education in Namibia, Malawi and Zambia.
