Giving communities the tools to thrive

 
 

Projects For All is a non-profit organisation, based in the UK and US. We gave ourselves the mission to empower communities facing human rights challenges by providing life-changing support and partnership, guided by respect, trust and community ownership. Every project we create is open source and designed to be owned and operated by the community, thus allowing its people to be the drivers of their own progression.

A Listening Pilgrimage: Sharing refugee stories while walking from Dover to Ioana.

As part of Refugee Voices, we have launched ‘A Listening Pilgrimage’, our very first Engagement Residency which enables us to listen and learn from communities so that we can plan new projects to support them.

Between April and June 2017 we are supporting Isabel Freer and Christy Hawkins while they walk from Dover to the Iona to learn from refugees, the communities who have welcomed them, and those who have rejected new migrants. The information that they gather along the way will be used to create new projects to support refugee justice.

"It is a wonderful moment for us to see Isabel and Christy heading off on their journey to learn about refugees in the UK," says Katrin Macmillan. "We are proud to be part of this conversation about refugee justice and look forward to learning from their experiences."

Hello World and Avenues: The World School at SXSWEdu on 9 March 2017, Austin, TX/US

Hello World and research partner Avenues: The World School successfully presented at this year's SXSWEdu. Hello World gives a unique insight into what we can learn about education from children in remote places. When we move aside and provide the right tools, children can take their education beyond expectations. 

As part of our partnership between Hello World and Avenues we are exploring how to bring high quality, scalable, sustainable and affordable education to places where children have no or only limited access to traditional schooling.

"We are excited to start our research with Avenues on our side," says Roland Wells, COO of Projects For All. "Working together with children at the Hello Hubs will help us understand how and why children learn in a self-directed context, and how we can best support them."
