We are working to support parents to increase their family income through new farming techniques and small business so they can provide for their children. 

We are building a strong education base by constructing early childhood education centres, equipped with playground equipment which allows children safe access to quality early childhood education.

We will continue our partnership with the Palaw community until 2023, continuing to build their knowledge, skills and resilience through sustainable projects, ensuring they will be equipped to identify and respond to needs as they arise.
