Lord David Sainsbury set up Gatsby in 1967 to support causes in areas he is passionate about, including science and economic development. Gatsby has worked in Africa since 1985 to create jobs, raise incomes and accelerate economic growth. It now funds and implements programmes to transform key sectors in East Africa via a long-term, holistic approach. The Wood Foundation Africa has partnered with Gatsby in its two tea industry programmes in Rwanda and Tanzania. The two foundations jointly own East African Tea Investments (EATI), a company limited by guarantee with charitable status, which holds a majority share in two tea factories in Rwanda.
