Content Production: We produce content for television, radios, print and online usually disseminated by our partner media houses. We disseminate success stories so that others can learn from them. We also commission journalists to write stories, features and produce documentaries.

Networking and Partnership: Disseminating best practices hinges on networking and working with partners who are implementing various policies. All our partners should strive to create a better world.

Community Involvement: We directly work with grass-root communities. Some of our projects involve working with local communities in advocacy campaigns sharing and general community empowerment.


The organisation has an independent Board of Non Executive Directors from diverse backgrounds who supervises management in project implementation.

The  Management Team oversees daily operations of the centre and reports to the Board of Directors.

Our governance instruments include a number of policies.


We rely on support from various partners. We are able to achieve alot because of our relationship with various partners.
