Our Mission: We ensure that individuals and organizations within the international development, humanitarian and sustainability sectors have the right learning at the right place and the right time through:
Collaboration—maximizing the power of the Sector doing things together;
Localization—striving to serve people in their own communities by providing appropriate tools, language, and other capabilities;
Acceleration—seeking the multiplier effect through innovative models to extend the network, reach, and impact of learning;
Private and public sector participation—forging partnerships with organizations and individuals to deliver best-practice solutions at a fraction of the cost.
