In the first instance, we are committed to a child-centred, creative approach to education and to the education of women. We aim to support communities, frequently, though not exclusively, those in rural areas, through empowering local women to enhance their life chances and at the same time to strengthen communities by becoming qualified teachers and educating young people.
We are also concerned that our work should support the development of education more broadly and to that end, we work with practising teachers in a variety of contexts. We intend that our training programmes should encourage participants to pursue their aspirations for example through working towards valid qualifications. To date, this has meant that many of our trainee early years teachers have subsequently embarked on distance learning degree courses.
