banner aboutus our approach Our Approach

  • We establish programmes to permanently change the lives of war and poverty affected children and youth, not just to improve their current circumstances. Our approach to programming, therefore, is long-term as lasting change requires long-term commitment.
  • We approach the planning and implementation of projects by building in ownership and decision making with all key partners and stakeholders.
  • We have a community and human development approach to programming. Programmes and projects must be culturally contextual and outcomes must include the personal development of programme constituents and beneficiaries as well as transformation of community and conditions.
  • We approach building cultures of peace to prevent new wars through the eyes of women and children, families and communities.
  • We approach the full education of all children and youth as a human right through meaningful and harmonious collaboration of grassroots communities, parents and caregivers, students and youth, schools and institutions, community stakeholders and local and central government working together in common cause.
  • We approach building peace to prevent new wars, and the education of children and youth, not as humanitarian efforts, but as solemn responsibilities to the communities and societies we serve.
  • We approach the role of youth as the leading change-makers in their communities as our highest priority in project planning and implementation.
  • We approach the development of solutions by addressing root cause problems, and embrace strategies that are innovative, replicable, scalable, systemic and sustainable.
  • We approach the development, planning and implementation of a project so that it is capable of delivering measurable outcomes combined with a body of knowledge that informs practice.
  • We approach programme and project planning and implementation to include the roles of central and local government.
