Putting robust systems in place to enable and evaluate our frontline work is vital so that we can continually learn and improve and ensure that your money is used more effectively as a result.
For the past decade we have taken a team of senior pupils from Monifieth High School to visit our work abroad. This gives them the invaluable experience of life in a different culture and opens their eyes to what it means to be a global citizen. Read more about our Global Citizenship Programmes here.
We work with local partners and communities enabling children to stay in education for longer, women to join self-help groups and start small businesses and health awareness promotion to take place. Over recent years funding from Comic Relief, The Big Lottery, British & Foreign Schools Society and Allan & Nesta Ferguson Trust has helped us to do more; providing clean, safe water via rainwater harvesting systems, teaching traditional farming techniques to communities who have been displaced from the land for a generation due to war, leading to year round food production and women being given a livelihood as they make reusable sanitary kits, providing income, dignity and increasing school attendance rates of girls.
