During the filming of the 2005 drama The Constant Gardener, the cast and crew decided to set up The Constant Gardener Trust, an organisation that, initially, would help specifically the communities they had met and worked with during the shoot. Their aim is to improve basic sanitation and education for those who are most in need of their help.
