We offer tailored support to our partner projects across our core areas of experience, such as needs assessment, project design, delivery and evaluation and overcoming the challenges of working with hard-to-reach and marginalised groups. We provide advice and training across these areas to help local projects to be effective and change the lives of vulnerable people.
We also have significant fundraising experience across grants giving organisations and communities, so mobilising funds, networks and resources for our partner projects is a significant part of our support. This way, we can enable small but effective education projects around the world to have greater access to funds and expertise. Our selection process After a project applies or is recommended to us, we assess their activities according to their financial records, official accreditations, previous evaluations, and evidence of impact.
Partners must be non-profit organisations or social enterprises established in the receiving country and legally recognised by the local authorities. The proposing entity must have a successful track record in the field of education, health or women’s empowerment, and local personnel with adequate technical competency to manage the project.
After these stages have passed, the decision to assist will be based on how the project’s needs match our skills and the related support or investment we can identify in the UK.
If you can see how your project fits into our vision and would be able to pass the selection process, get in touch with us to begin the formal application process.
