Continuing Grant's efforts on background research of this project, here 
is the link to the latest report from the UK Charity Commission about 
the foundation.


The report shows that in 2010 the foundation had relatively little 
income and expense (approximately $270 and $750, respectively) so I'm 
not sure how active the project is now but the premise of their project 
does sound like a very interesting idea.
