The foundation has continued its crucial work in building democracy overseas, through a variety of targeted programmes ranging from the fostering of good governance to the promotion of civil society. The demands have been great, and the foundation has had some notable successes. The highlight was their work in Serbia where, through a wide-ranging programme of work, they helped the Serbian people assert their democratic rights. Work elsewhere in the Balkans, Africa and central and eastern Europe has also continued to bear fruit. In 2000–01 the foundation received a grant-in-aid of £4,155,000 from the FCO. Copies of the annual report have been placed in the Libraries of the House.
