Shifting how the world responds to inequity and injustice
CLF supports and funds education initiatives and emergency response to natural disasters. We focus on the effects of climate change on those most marginalized through preparedness and climate resilience projects across the Caribbean. We advocate for policy and systems change to improve the quality of life for communities across the globe.
CLF was founded in 2012 by Robyn “Rihanna” Fenty in honor of her grandparents Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.
CLF is shifting how the world responds to natural disasters through emergency preparedness and community resilience projects. CLF’s education work tackles barriers to access through holistic initiatives around the globe. Through the voices of Rihanna and her fans, CLF also advocates for policy and systems change while mobilizing people to take action in response to the world’s injustices.
Current programs include primary and secondary education programs in Malawi, Barbados, and Senegal; emergency response programs in the Caribbean and across the globe; and the Clara Lionel Foundation Global Scholarship Program.
