As a result of a tripartite agreement between the Goa government, the Helen Hamlyn Trust (HHT) and the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH), the Reis Magos fortress in Goa will be conserved over the next two years.
The HHT has donated 35 million rupees towards the cost of restoring the fortress, with Lady Hamlyn describing it as her "gift for Goa". The Goan government has pledged a further 50 million rupees towards conservation work in the region.

The fortress was built by Portuguese settlers in 1551 and was used to house prisoners until 1993.
