Our Values

We have been given a gift — an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.

We share a common vision of a world where everyone has the opportunity to learn and prosper.

We value our differences and our similarities. We respect, trust, and support each other. We strive to be humble and empathetic and to always act ethically.

We ask questions, we listen, and we are heard. We encourage healthy debate and creative thinking.

We make mistakes, we reflect and grow. We are continuously developing our skills and expanding our knowledge. We have much to learn from our clients, peers, and partners.

We are ambitious and driven. We laugh at ourselves and with each other.

We are a team.

Our journey together makes our impact even more meaningful.

— Reeta Roy, President and CEO

Listening and Working Collaboratively

Our work begins with listening. Based on what we learn, we determine plans that align with the aspirations and needs of those we work with.

The insight of young people shapes our work, and their voices and ambitions continue to play a central role in all that we do. We work with African governments, the private sector, educators, and other funders to design holistic solutions to address the youth employment challenge.
