About us

We are passionate about critical social challenges, especially early childhood education. We prioritise this because we believe that early childhood education offers scientifically proven benefits for children and education in general. It is the most critical point of investment in a child's education.

We focus on systemic social change and invest in data-based solutions. Without knowing whether or not school is adding value to the pupil, the whole education process becomes defunct. We place a high value on tracking learning as our flagship programme. We align all our programme work to respond to critical data points in driving change and decision making.

We ensure that children have a strong backbone in literacy and numeracy, and attain the minimum proficiency early in their school life which will benefit them for life. We champion literacy and numeracy as it is the backbone of all learning. We establish and furnish libraries with reading material and learning resources and engage pupils and teachers in extracurricular activities through clubs aimed at developing essential skills in learning and life.
