We strive for operational excellence; the ability to run and manage operations efficiently and competently, while aspiring to a standard of excellence that ensures a return on investment.


We are intrigued by scalability. We are passionate about projects, models and tools that can be shared and used to create impact at scale.


We are in awe of innovation. We want our partners to think and create outside the box, not to be bound by fear of the limitations or the complexity and size of the challenge.

Building Capacity

We are passionate about building capacity. We are interested in projects that create knowledge and build capacity in people that leads to real change and increased well being.


We are focussed on impacts, which, simply put, means we are most interested in how our investment of time, effort and resources delivers results.

Responsible Approach

We are invested in a responsible approach, which echoes sustainability but goes beyond it. We want to be part of projects and initiatives that have real resilience and adaptability. Projects that go beyond ‘no harm’ and add to the wellbeing of the planet and its people.


We endeavour to create positive value for the world and demand measurability for our own actions and actions taken by those working with us.

Adaptive Management

We follow adaptive management processes, continually improving our practices by learning from outcomes.
