Freemasonry is here to help them also, we have a Masonic Trust for Boys and Girls. The mission ” To continue to relieve poverty and provide an education and preparation for life for the children of the family of a Freemason and, where funds permit for any children, as their fathers would have done, had they been able so to do “.
In the academic year 2003/4 the Trust supported 725 students, through the UndergradAid Scheme. If you would like to know more : http://www.rmtgb.org
