THE SIGNIFICANCE OF GENDER EQUITY IN OUR JOURNEY TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
We believe that by resolving gender inequality, communities can forge more sustainable systems. This is because perennial societal imbalances such as gender impede the sustainability of human capital in the functioning of more balanced societies. Therefore - where we are able to foster equality - we can achieve long-term sustainable outcomes economically, as well as socially. This is what we refer to as our 'soft power effect', where a small, non-interventionist approach can be truly powerful.
HOW DO WE SELECT OUR BENEFICIARIES?
Our balanced gender ethos fosters a comprehensive intake of children from the local community, regardless of religion or tribal background.
We use a targeted inter-agency approach that gives a priority to beneficiaries in most need. We work with local ministries, the education sector and families to help identify young people who will benefit the most.
