Moving from formal education to informal education is stimulating, giving projects more fluidity, dynamism, interactivity and room to try new ways of engaging with people.

For over fifteen years we have supported and empowered innovation and supported partners in line with our core commitment to create lasting difference in the communities we engage in by perpetuating self-sustaining transformational initiatives.
