The Paul Pholeros Foundation was established in 2018 to honour and continue the work of Paul Pholeros, an architect who was committed to improving peoples’ lives, through his work in Australia and overseas particularly in Nepal.

The PPF is guided by Paul’s passions: delivering practical solutions to communities in need, increasing skills locally, and investing in future generations by creating opportunities for young people to experience the realities of other cultures and living conditions.

Once a year a PPF Fellowship is offered to a small team from Australia, to work with a Nepali team on a community based sanitation project.  The team works on improving or upgrading plumbing and infrastructure, and documenting the process for training resource materials.

The PPF is recruiting for the PPF Fellowship 2020 team – a plumber and architectural graduate under the age of 30  to work in Nepal for one month in March-April 2020.
