The Dan Eley Foundation is a modest, highly accountable charity who works closely with other partner charities both in Colombia and the UK to bring about our aims.
Our goal is to create a supportive environment where disadvantaged young children are given the opportunity to try a range of technical and vocational skills and to provide them with the professional training they need to obtain legitimate employment.
Our aim is to help young people to help themselves and ultimately achieve true independence.
Over 300 young people have benefited from our programmes to date.
Since 2012, when Dan started his charity, he has been giving talks about the life changing impact of his injury and how to overcome such adversity, turning it into success and a more profound sense of fulfilment in life.
“Dan delivers a very powerful and incisive talk which is equally moving and joyful. Indeed his is a personal story to remind us that the human spirit is indomitable. From his unique perspective Dan explains brilliantly how we can all do so much more than just cope with adversity.”
