Pilot Project: Current Programs


Economic Sustainability: social Impact business

We have infrastructure, educational programs and strategic partnerships in place. In conjunction to maintaining these programs we are shifting our focus on developing a sustainable business at the center and creating job opportunities.



Our strategy has always been to leverage innovative technologies to increase education levels and provide access to employment. Learn about our digital literacy programs that have become the foundation of our approach to economic development.


early childhood education

Sustainability doesn't happen over night. We know that in order for long term impact to take place we have to start young. Together, with leaders in the community and educators, we will help to shape the minds and actions of tomorrow.


Women's economic empowerment

UN Women says that when more women work, economies grow. By increasing the female labour force participation—or a reduction in the gap between women’s and men’s labour force participation—results in faster economic growth.
