Mission

Our mission is to create alternative learning spaces for children living in rural and marginalized communities.

Our Values

Each of our beneficiary, community members, and team are treated with respect and dignity as it is deserved by every human. For the children that we work with, we ensure that they exercise their right to a dignified childhood. This includes play and other recreation activities.

We believe that creativity is an inherent potential in every individual. We provide opportunities for such expressions.

We keep our activities open and accessible to all our supporters and stakeholders. Events and other programs are usually reported in our blog post, social media and Quarterly newsletters.

We uphold a simple standard of doing what we say and saying what we did or will do. This includes financial integrity. We publish annual reports and specific project reports which are usually open to all stakeholders and supporters.

Marginalized:

We use the EFA Global Monitoring Report 2010. It defines marginalization as “a form of acute and persistent disadvantage rooted in underlying social inequalities”. It has a comprehensive list of marginalized groups which includes women, hard­-to-­reach groups such as indigenous people and ethnic minorities, poor households, people living in informal settlements, individuals with disabilities, rural populations, nomadic populations those affected by armed conflict and HIV and AIDS, and street and working children.
