Theory of Change
Our guide to achieving lasting change for children.
Our Theory of Change is fundamentally grounded in the belief that the most appropriate way to help bring about change for the communities we serve is through meaningful partnership - rangapū.
Our Theory of Change is based on four interlinked pillars:
1. Assets - The basic needs of children and youth are met.
2. Voice, Power and Agency - Children and youth participate for change
3. Protection - Children and youth are protected and have a sense of wellbeing.
4. Formal systems - Implementing change at micro, meso and macro levels.
Change begins when the basic needs of children and youth are met.
Our Programmes are holistic, meaning projects form part of an overall plan and are interlinked. Projects are typically a mix of water and sanitation, healthcare and nutrition improvements, education support, child protection, resilience-building, livelihoods and advocacy.
