Clare embarked on a University Masters in 2021 at the University of Kent. Here, she gives us an insight into some of the topics she is learning about.
“I wanted to gather as much insight into the charity sector as possible. This course has shown me where philanthropy grew from and why it still exists in the 21st century. Philanthropy comes from the Greek language, its
translation to English “love of human kind”. Individuals have been practising this as far back as the Greek gods.”
“I have learnt a lot about the world’s execution and translation of charity and how philanthropy may be different in other cultures and continents. I have learnt a great deal how people give their wealth, not just money, but expertise and time to others, and how, in some instances, the wealth is at the cost of others! How the mega rich have a tainted reputation and how charities are delivering services across the globe to the UK.”
“I’m in the final few months of my masters degree, and I am currently writing my dissertation.”
Would you like to get involved and help Clare with her research?
Clare’s research project looks to explore what role philanthropy has in supporting families with allergies. She will be conducting a survey and interviews with families that have children with allergies to see how they feel charities have been supporting them and how they feel the money should be spent.
