We take a holistic approach to development, working across three main areas: education, access to water and community empowerment. Our programs include girls hostels, which aim to raise achievement in government secondary schools and village water points to reduce disease and the time spent collecting water, allowing more girls to access education.

We work closely with local communities to ensure that our programs are relevant and effective, and we prioritize sustainability to ensure that our impact lasts.
