Our Values

  • Powering Change With People

    We believe anyone can be a leader, with the right support. We provide communities with the right resources, so they can be mobilised, and create lasting change for themselves.

  • Acting Sustainably

    We provide opportunities to lead. We understand that real change can be brought about only by addressing root causes, and strengthening leaders. We leverage what already exists within our communities – we organize resources, time, and talent within our neighbourhoods for solutions that build stronger systems and local networks that last beyond our campaigns.

    Learning Constantly

    We use our entrepreneurial spirit to try new methods, reflect, and adapt based on research, data, and results – successes and failures alike. We take risks and are comfortable with failure so long as we don’t make the same mistake again.

    Listening First

    We listen to people – even the softest voices – to eliminate our own biases and assumptions. We focus on understanding the change that people want. By helping people listen to each other’s diverse perspectives to come up with strong solutions from within the community.

  • Building Leadership
    Through Action

    Building Leadership
    Through Action

    We foster and cultivate relationships through on ground grassroot work, and enable people to discover their own power. We go beyond lectures and talks, and give the people real responsibilities, not just training.
