In the first five years of our partnership with Korukonda we’re working closely with leaders and regularly meeting with the community to understand their challenges and needs. Together, we have selected a few projects to start on that are the most urgent to child health and development.  

Once this work is completed, in the following 5-10 years, we will continue to develop and widen our focus to more areas of need, all the while ensuring that the community is a partner in their development journey. We plan for our partnership to continue until 2027 when we will have delivered a multitude of skills and knowledge for the community to continue their own development.
