What we do

We invest in children, youth and women to get them employed or set up a business. This has a very powerful multiplying effect, which not only changes their lives, but typically the lives of 5 more family members.

How we do it

Our aim is to make the 10,000 people that we support more employable, by supporting their education to a level that allows them to earn a decent wage, and have a secure future.

Why it works

  • Local – ideas, programs and changes come from the community, our beneficiaries and our local team; they are not conceived in London.
  • Lean – our programs run without excess; for us every penny counts and can be used to change a life. We are not interested in superfluous administrative costs.
  • Leap – we are not afraid to try an idea, take risks and learn lessons.
  • Lend – we have built a successful community development model and have valuable knowledge to share with others.
  • Large – we can grow this. Our model works and we can make it bigger, we can get more people into jobs, more loans to women and more children into school.
  • Learn – carefully monitoring our programs and evaluating the impact means that we are constantly learning, adapting, changing and improving our programs to keep
