UPCOMING MISSIONS

The Women Empowerment Project, Bonga, Ethiopia

Looking ahead, the SiGMA Foundation has ambitious plans for the upcoming year. Building on the success of past initiatives, the Foundation aims to expand its reach and scale its impact in key areas.

In Ethiopia, the Foundation plans to further support the Women Empowerment Project, focusing on scaling educational programs and providing resources for vocational training.

Construction of a versatile multi-sensory hall, Bataan, The Philippines

Continuing its commitment to the Philippines, the Foundation will be inaugurating the mullti-sensory hall in Bataan under the auspices of Fr Joseph Cremona, MSSP, and will be looking to further invest in additional housing projects to address homelessness and improve living conditions for marginalized communities.

Construction of an additional wing at the Dreams of Horses therapy farm, Gozo, Malta

SIGMA Foundation is involved in the financing of the construction of an additional wing at the Dreams of Horses therapy farm in Gozo. This new space can serve as classrooms and dormitories as the plans for this farm are to expand and educate children with past traumas through interactions with animals. The farm also deals with PTSD victims, victims of domestic violence as well as folks that have a colourful past, to reintegrate them into society.

PAST MISSIONS

The G.L.O.W Campaign (2024)

The SiGMA Foundation’s G.L.O.W (Give Little Ones Wings) Campaign marked a significant milestone in our mission to support underprivileged children worldwide.

This mission focused on supporting children in Colombia with Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate conditions. As part of this mission, we brought about a joint physical challenge where we successfully led 25 souls through the challenging terrain of the Lost City Trail in Northern Colombia.

Through collective efforts and the generosity of our partners and challenge participants, we are funding 60 cleft lip and/or palate reconstructive surgeries, which will be ongoing for the year of 2024, ultimately transforming the lives of these children and giving them a newfound sense of confidence and hope. Our on-ground operations, in collaboration with Premium Care Kids, provided essential medical care and support to those in need.

3-in-1 School in Bonga, Ethiopia (2023)

In January 2023, the SiGMA Foundation made a momentous achievement, as we inaugurated a 3-in-1 school in Jimma Bonga, Ethiopia. The school includes a kindergarten, primary, and junior-secondary, and is providing a solid foundation in education to 1,000 students each year.

The building of the school was made possible by the funds raised from three separate iterations of Brown’s Camino de Santiago expeditions over the course of a year and a half, which enabled the SiGMA Foundation to raise €300,000.

Local Projects (2020)

In 2020, the SiGMA Foundation focused on local projects, including financing the construction of an additional wing at the Dreams of Horses therapy farm in Gozo, Malta. This expansion aimed to provide space for classrooms and dormitories to educate children with past traumas through horse therapy and interactions with animals.

Additionally, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foundation addressed educational challenges through the Tech for Ed Malta campaign by relocating 50 laptops to children in need for online schooling. Furthermore, the Foundation collected EUR 20,000 worth of vouchers through the Sharing is Caring campaign to support local charities in Malta, benefiting the underprivileged during the pandemic.

FUNDRAISING EVENTS AND EXPEDITIONS

Camino de Santiago Challenges

The SiGMA Foundation completed five impactful Camino de Santiago Challenges between 2020 and 2023, raising funds for various philanthropic endeavors. These efforts included refurbishing a school in Bonga, Ethiopia, culminating in the inauguration of a new wing in January 2023.

In September 2023, the Foundation completed its fifth Camino de Santiago Challenge and is now preparing for the sixth in May 2024. This upcoming expedition aims to fund the construction of the Women Empowerment Project in Bonga, Ethiopia, continuing the Foundation’s commitment to education and community empowerment in the region.

Mount Toubkal Expeditions

In May 2023, the SiGMA Foundation achieved a milestone with its inaugural Mount Toubkal Expedition, led by CPO Keith Marshall. This challenging trek tested participants’ endurance while highlighting our commitment to active philanthropy. 

Following the success of past mountain expeditions, including the “Kilimanjaro Challenge,” our team reached new heights by summiting Mount Toubkal, raising crucial funds for charitable causes. Looking ahead to 2024, preparations are underway for the second edition of the Mount Toubkal Expedition in May. This upcoming expedition offers another chance for our team to unite, push boundaries, and make a difference. 

Proceeds from these expeditions support the Women Empowerment Institution, advancing our mission to uplift communities. We welcome individuals from all walks of life to join us on this transformative journey as we climb for a cause and strive for positive change.

Art Auctions at SiGMA Group’s Events

The Art Auctions at SiGMA Group’s Events serve as powerful fundraising platforms for the SiGMA Foundation. Attendees bid on selected artworks, with proceeds funding various Foundation projects. These proceeds go to supporting projects empowering individuals and communities through education and skills development.

The auctions, featured in each SiGMA Group summit, not only raises funds but also fosters community and solidarity within the industries targeted by the SiGMA Group, transcending art appreciation to support a greater cause.

Expedition Participants Fundraising Efforts

Participants of our expeditions go above and beyond to raise funds for our philanthropic initiatives through a variety of innovative methods. From organizing baked goods sales and fitness classes to hosting bingo nights and social events, our participants leverage their skills and networks to garner support for our cause. Additionally, many engage in physical challenges and reunions to rally support from friends, family, and colleagues. Furthermore, corporate donations play a significant role in bolstering our fundraising efforts, with businesses generously contributing to our cause. 

Together, these diverse fundraising endeavors enable us to continue our mission of making a positive impact on communities worldwide.

We invite anyone from within the iGaming industry and beyond to join us on this journey. Whether you’re an experienced trekker or looking for a new challenge, your participation will play a vital role in supporting our mission of making a positive impact in the lives of those in need.

今年一月,SiGMA基金会在吉马邦加建立了一所学校,这意味着每年将有1000名学生接受教育。教育是发展与和平生活的基础,也是博爱与团结的基础,对于所有通过SiGMA基金会帮助这里的贫困人们的马耳他人民,我深表感谢。

Markos Ghebremedhin主教

我认识Keith Marshall大约有二十年,他有一颗非常柔软、慷慨的心。通过 “乞力马扎罗山挑战” 以及后来的SiGMA基金会,他影响了成千上万儿童的生活,范围甚广,我们的教区将为此永远心怀感激。我们张开双臂欢迎任何愿意为SiGMA基金会做出贡献的人,支持他们对最贫困社区人口努力的善心。

在教育方面,SiGMA基金会一直是我们的长期合作伙伴。他们带来了人群,支持我们吉马邦加的孩子,对他们的生活产生了很多影响。对一个世代进行教育,就是在创造未来,从这个角度来看,SiGMA基金会对我们的影响至关重要。

Abba Kifle

对于我们埃塞俄比亚和吉马邦加教区来说,马耳他是一个非常重要的岛国,而SiGMA基金会这样的组织存在正是主因。为了建设更美好的明天,人们现在就必须行动起来,基金会深知这点。我们非常感谢基金会和Keith Marshall对教育的热爱和奉献,他们将惠及数十代人。

Lutgarda修女

SiGMA基金会改善了埃塞俄比亚许多家庭的生活方式。他们为我们提供了新的工具和资源,帮助我们的年轻人学习新技能,为自己和家人创造更好的生活。我们感谢SiGMA基金会,并祈祷他们的工作继续取得成功。愿上帝保佑SiGMA基金会,和所有支持他们、帮助有需要的族群的人。
