We believe in creating sustainable change through long-term community programmes focused on achieving self-reliance.
We currently have programmes in six priority areas. As part of our Theory of Change, we work with local partners to develop Road Maps - plans that help each community reach self-reliance. Our commitment to these communities helps us achieve real, lasting changes that help children and youth to thrive.
