Boots on the ground approach

All activities have strong links to alleviate the suffering of individuals and families in the poorest communities through grassroots sustainable initiatives aimed at particularly local empowerment, poverty alleviation and environmental sustainability at a community-level. All our activities are action-based and have strong focus on achieving leading local participation, sustained learning benefits and replication of local success stories.
