We work alongside experienced and well-established partners in the developing world. We aim to build the capacity of our partner organisations and provide support for programme design, implementation and evaluation. We maintain a Twin-Track approach to our work, which focuses on the direct needs of children with disabilities and their families as well as the long-term changes needed in society. We carefully select the partners we work with and measure their impact against strictly set criteria.
