We take a no-nonsense, fairly business-minded approach to charity: the communities and individuals we support are considered ‘business’ partners and co-investors and we treat them as such. We aim to develop result oriented programs for investing in education, ensuring that a community is willing and able in the longer term to continue to invest their own resources in the education of their children.


  • to provide our development aid in the most effective and efficient manner possible
  • to achieve empowerment of the local people we work with and avoid aid dependency
  • to work within and respect the existing government and community structures
  • to achieve tangible results that can be measured and evaluated
