Welcome to The Daneford Trust
The Daneford Trust is a grassroots youth exchange program and registered charity based in Bethnal Green, East London. We offer ethical overseas volunteering placements to community-based projects in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean for Londoners aged 18-30. Established in 1982 by Tony Stevens, who was then a teacher at Daneford School for Boys (now Bethnal Green Academy), the Trust grew out of a school exchange in 1977 between Daneford and Haggerston Secondary Schools in London and schools in Botswana, South Africa and Lesotho.
