Equal partnerships supporting long term initiatives in South America and Africa.
Overseas development has changed a great deal in recent years. Gone are the days when the colonial approach of "rich countries helping poor people" is seen as the accepted strategy, successful development nowadays is much more about forming partnerships and harnessing combined skills and resources. This is at the heart of Quest4Change's approach to our projects. Each project is formed in partnership with local community groups or local NGOs, and while we provide essential skills, funds and advocacy, the drive and direction of each project is ultimately determined by the local partners. This, we feel helps to ensure a genuine sense of sustainability, as well as real ownership of the project by the local communities.
We work with a variety of different projects, but each with a common criteria in that our support of funding together with short term volunteer support will provide a genuinely positive impact and benefit to the long term aims of the project.
