Finlays Community Trust

James Finlay Kenya, Finlays' Kenyan tea growing operation, has recently launched the Finlays Community Trust, an independent charity that aims to nurture sustainable growth and empower local communities. To ensure the community has an equal voice in deciding how funding is allocated to different projects, in order to achieve the greatest impact, the Trust has been structured to include three Trustees nominated by the local community, and three Trustees nominated by Finlays – overseen by an independent Chair. 

James Finlay Kenya has invested significantly over many decades in welfare, infrastructure, conservation of the environment, sustainable energy, and education for local communities through a wide array of projects. Simeon Hutchinson, Managing Director of James Finlay Kenya, says: "This launch marks a new chapter in Finlays' social, environmental, and economic commitment to Kericho and Bomet Counties."
