About US

Our Story
Our Philosophy

Founders Abner Sauveur and Christine Low began development in Matènwa by asking the people of this community what they felt were their most pressing needs. Inclusive means deciding together with those who you are trying to help what kind of development should be done.

Our mission is to empower the local community in an opportunity to reflect & determine their own solutions while interdependantly partnering with the local and international community.

A community driven approach to education and development which promotes a depth of understand rarely found between international NGOs & the people.
