Our mission

To get preschoolers in rural Ghana and Uganda school-ready.

1. Communities

at the heart

We work with deprived, rural communities to help them gain what they want and need for themselves and their children.

2. Empowerment

is key

We empower parents, local government officials teachers, community leaders by giving them the skills, vision and drive to take action themselves. We simply provide the training.

Our values

3. Solutions must be sustainable

We use local talent and local resources so that our programmes can be run and sustained by resource-poor local governments and by  communities themselves.

4. Creativity can solve many problems

We believe in the creative use of local resources and lively minds helps us tackle complex problems with cheap and simple solutions.

5. Equity benefits everyone


6. Quality drives success


7. Accountability in everything

We work with some of the most marginalised and vulnerable people in the world and are committed to safeguarding and promoting their rights.
