Constant Gardener Trust

The Constant Gardener Trust was established in 2004 soon after the filming of The Constant Gardener near Nairobi, Kenya. On location in the slums of Kibera and Loiyangalani, the situation of the inhabitants affected the crew so much it was decided to set up the Trust in order to give thanks to the community for their help during filming.

The Trust has contributed freshwater tanks and shower blocks to the areas around filming. It has also funded an extension to the PAG primary school in Kibera as well as a bridge to allow easier access to the local health clinic.

Patrons are stars of the film, Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz, the film's director Fernando Meirelles and the author of the source novel, John le Carré.
