New Directions in Development
A better life for all
We work with community groups, charities and government in many projects to reduce conflict, strengthen civil society and empower communities
We provide education - water and sanitation - emergency food.
We also help communities recover.
HOW WE WORK
Our approach is based on a simple principle.
Members of the poor communities themselves are the people with the insights, determination, perseverance – and responsibility – to care for their own children and to improve their own situations.
We believe that children should be cared for in their own community
Our projects are planned, managed and staffed by local people
We respond to all the needs of children within their community
