Strategy

In order to deliver our education and livelihoods work we are committed to a strategy with seven key approaches:

Education

  • Laying the foundations for learning: We will focus on delivering quality early learning programs. We know a child's early years are critical to ensuring they benefit fully from their education at primary level and beyond
  • Maximizing learning: We will ensure children get the best possible education at primary level, focusing on math, literacy, sciences, health, agriculture, critical thinking and more. We will also pilot work to help children with particular disadvantages, such as disabilities
  • Including girls: We will increase opportunities for girls to benefit fully from a quality education. ¬†We currently work in regions where girls are especially disadvantaged and will focus on issues such as restrictive cultural practices and girl-friendly teaching methods
  • Preparing for continuous learning: We will support children's transition from primary education to secondary education or vocational training and overcome the barriers preventing children from progressing beyond primary school¬†

Livelihoods

  • Supporting financial services and business development: We will support people's ability to save and access credit through community savings and loans groups and expand business skills development work
  • Boosting harvests and increasing access to markets: We will improve farm productivity as well as post-harvest storage and market awareness to help ensure families have access to food throughout the year, as well the opportunity to increase their income
  • Strengthening resilience to shocks and stresses: We will empower communities to prepare for external stresses such as droughts and price fluctuations through income diversification, water and land management and conservation
