Our Mission

Our mission is to develop, through education and action, cohesive communities empowered to create rich, sustainable lives for themselves and future generations.
For us, community, environment and development are linked. Relationships and networks developed through trust and a continuing dialogue, enable us to respond to changes - internal and external; social, economic and environmental.

Working and learning together, our Centre and communities in this area not only develop a deeper understanding of the interactions among the different parts of the village ecosystem, but also of the conflicts being generated by modernity in traditional ways of living. Our long term engagement with the communities, particularly women and children, enables a participatory way of making and implementing decisions about what is best for them, their families and their villages.

With this framework, we have been in a position to plan, organise and implement programmes that respond to various issues like Environment, Climate Change, Education, Women's Empowerment, Health, Livelihoods, Energy, Water and Sanitation.
