All of our interventions hold in heart three basic elements -
technology, education, and the idea of community in

Peace Building

Our overall take is to create awareness, advocate for dialogues, encourage the design and deployment of ICT amenities and technologies aimed at monitoring the spread of harmful rumours and online hate speech and also help communities in post-war communities recover from trauma.

Assess Skills & Skills Development

Under this area of operation, we also look at supporting young people with access to / development of valuable life skills and knowledge through computer skills and entrepreneurship training, hands-on in basic hardware, repair and upcycling to earn them market-relevant lives.

Education

Education is the pathway to poverty mitigation and our primary focus on the education sector is on encouraging child education, sex education, and MHM to keep young people in school, and providing access to learning resources such as books.
