We work entirely through local partner organisations to ensure that appropriate local solutions are found to problems, and to help strengthen the local charity sector. We only work with those individuals and organisations who help those in need, irrespective of religion, ethnicity or political views, who meet high standards of transparency in their activities, and share our ethic of empowering their beneficiaries.
