Our unique approach focuses on understanding the structural impediments to development, as well as the strengths of the communities we work with. We share our cultural insights with partners and collaborate with experts from a variety of fields to create long term solutions.
- We use our insights to understand what are the real local needs.
- We connect the right people together to challenge established thinking and drive transformation.
- We work with partners to build the capabilities that enable communities to achieve sustainable advantage.
- We deliver practical solutions working with local resource and leveraging local materials and cultural assets.
Unlike aid agencies, who typically address immediate problems, our focus is on regenerative development. We invest in projects and programs designed to give communities competitive edge and drive long term value. Our work is evidence-based; we apply the rigours of research and global best practice. We encourage a benefit mindset within all parties to drive projects forward. It is the depth of our cultural insights and connections, combined with the quality of our thinking, that sets us apart.
