Williams is to help set up a non-profit foundation in Angola to help improve education, energy efficiency and road safety in the country.
The Williams Foundation has been set-up in a partnership with the team's newly appointed partner Ridge Solutions, from Angola.
Adam Parr, Williams CEO, said: "We are delighted to be establishing the Williams Foundation in Angola in partnership with Ridge Solutions. Angola is a wonderful country which has a strong programme of social and economic development following many difficult years.
"Road safety and education are important challenges for the people of Angola and we are pleased to be able to provide assistance in these areas. Motor sports offer opportunities for the country to develop both on the sporting front and economically and Williams are proud to be a part of the endeavour."
