To improve the lives of children, families and communities in developing countries around the world, by offering education and care programmes.

The Horizon Foundation was set up by Patrick and Kirkland Smulders in 2004 to help improve the lives of young people and their communities in various countries in the Middle East and Asia through education. It was born of a joint desire to give back through empowering young people and women to act as change agents in their local communities and to focus in particular on societies that we felt would benefit from strong leadership.
