We aim to create an equitable world where everyone is guided foremost by the values and highest standards of care for humanity and people development

  • To continually improve and increase scope of last mile delivery of education, training and development.
  • To ensure this is fit for purpose for individual, community, national and social development.
  • To create opportunities for and engage people, small and micro-organisations, interested in delivering high quality work in local grassroots contexts
  • To support their operations and development enhancing quality of outcomes achieved
  • To get recognition for best practices, impact and contribution of small and micro-scale members
  • Manpower development is the most critical need of the hour and underpins society‚Äôs all challenges and their potential solutions.
  • There is an underlying spirit of initiative and noble intention amongst individuals to contribute to advancement of society and do something meaningful to make the world a better place.
  • Individuals often find lack of guidance and support which undermines their efforts to create and pursue sustainable and impactful institutions.
  • Small and micro-institutions embedded in the local context are best placed and key for delivering last mile benefits to intended beneficiaries in human development efforts and delivering sustainable change especially on a large scale.
  • Most development agendas, especially those requiring change in behaviour and developing new capabilities, need ongoing support which is best provided with participation of local stakeholders
  • Large companies and institutions usually find favour and corner large part of contracts and financing deals for projects and programmes especially from the public sector, some of which often are executed poorly on account of large overheads and weak or lack of last mile presence.
  • Most Industry and trade associations are dominated by large players and it is difficult for small aspirants and practitioners to gain visibility and demonstrate credibility in comparison to these large players.
  • While the manufacturing and industrial mindset allows for advantages being conferred on account of centralised standardised production, economies of scale and distribution channels in the services sector this approach is rather ineffective, especially in the education and human capability development sector.
  • Education, skills, perspectives and behavioural changes are very personal and context specific, in most cases this necessitates awareness of and managing a range of variables.
  • Often sustained support and local contextual knowledge is provided by locally entrenched institutions or personnel which when omitted from the plans undermine achievement of objectives. In addition real decentralised capacity building which grows local job creation and employment is therefore not achieved.
  • Real inclusive growth and all round progress is in large measure dependent on local capacity building, job creation and reaching diffused beneficiaries.
  • For development of local institutions it is important to provide them support to develop capabilities in an affordable manner.
  • It is also important that these institutions be supported through provision of know-how and capabilities that are abreast of the latest developments and aligned with prevailing insight. Even though this may be done in a phased manner in order to make expectations of achievement and pace of change realistic and effective.
  • It is also important that these institutions be supported through provision of know-how and capabilities that are abreast of the latest developments and aligned with prevailing insight. Even though this may be done in a phased manner in order to make expectations of achievement and pace of change realistic and effective.
  • Therefore this necessitates a mechanism and a conduit of constant but progressive and holistic support following principles of scaffolding from simple to complex. This external support provided through a peer network and a repository association is what we believe we can offer and aim to provide.
