From idea to income...
We build the capacity of schools, youth groups, civil society and community-based organisations for greater economic empowerment.
We have worked with Via Don Bosco, The British Council, Save the Children Thailand, Opportunity International and the UK Department for International Development at the local level in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Tailored Training and Consultancy in Thailand
Over a 2-year period, we worked with Save The Children to support under -resourced Migrant Learning Centres on the Thai-Burmese border to develop income generation activities to supplement donor-funding.
After twelve months of running an organic egg business with our assistance, one Learning Center had gained additional support from the community and started covering some of their running costs.
"This year we lost 20% of the funding for the rental cost of our learning center. We had to save money, but it is difficult for us because half of parents cannot pay school fees. With the school business we now know how to keep chickens and how to produce our own organic feed. We've made a profit of over 2,000 Thai Baht ($65) and now want to build a duck farm or a shop!"
