A HISTORY OF GIVING
The Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) was founded in 2012 by Robyn “Rihanna” Fenty in honor of her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite. CLF is a extension of the value of community responsibility Rihanna’s family instilled in her.
INVESTING IN EDUCATION
Education is a critical component of a foundation for a more productive and happier life. Current programs include primary and secondary education programs in Malawi, Barbados and Senegal, and the Clara Lionel Foundation Global Scholarship Program.
CHANGING THE EMERGENCY RESPONSE MODEL
CLF prioritizes acting immediately and effectively to major natural disasters as well as partnering with organizations and programs that bridge the gap between crisis response and long-term development.
