Training & Research
Training has been instrumental for the running of community based programmes. The organisation has invited, with help of Embassies, several foreign trainers to come and help with training of leaders.

The organisation partners with several leading international organisations in the fields of Child Rights, Internet Safety, Research, Collaborations, Sustainable development in ensuring Southern Africa is progressing and to help develop a roadmap for the future.
