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

Supporting women 

Self help groups bring women together in small groups. 

They support each in saving each week, then there is training and support in setting up

small businesses, with loans and ongoing support. 

They also become more aware of child rights, working together to end female genital

mutilation, child abuse and slavery. 

They work together with each other and other groups to build civil society. 

They are bringing about a quiet economic, social and political revolution, as well as helping thousands out of povery.

After a gap due to travel restrictions we were able to visit JeCCDO projects.  Here are just some of them.
Rewilding

Supporting in climate change.
Our actions include planting trees, growing different and varied crops, cleaning and removing rubbish.
Watch this film to show how two projects, one at Lake Hawassa in the Rift Valley of Ethiopia and the other in the Don River Basin in the UK share the same concern for our environment.

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 are:

Child-centred

 

We believe that children should be cared for in their own community

Community-based

 

Our projects are planned, managed and staffed by local people

Integrated

 

We respond to all the needs of children within their community

This approach has so far given a new life to over 350,000 children
