Heritage Malta

The Melita Foundation backed the Olea project, helping uncover and preserve ancient olive trees, and discovering Malta’s rich history.

The Melita Foundation teamed up with Heritage Malta for the Olea project, which involves excavating and carbon-dating an ancient olive grove near the Roman Villa. This project aims to preserve and study 2000-year-old olive trees. The Melita Foundation backs this project because it helps uncover and protect Malta’s rich history. By investigating these ancient trees, the project provides insights into Malta’s past and ensures the preservation of this unique cultural heritage.

Making a difference together

Since starting in 2020, The Melita Foundation has backed many projects run by different groups and backgrounds. From local STEM skills for school kids in the Three Cities to global stuff like planting trees, ESG awareness, teaching maritime law and conservation and ensuring our heritage is well taken care of.
