Protecting the environment:
We strive to enhance biodiversity via rewilding and our support of best practices for water conservation and energy consumption.
Projects include building schools, providing language and computer courses, and ensuring equal access to education for girls.
Developing local skills:
We focus on skills that will allow for economic self-sufficiency, including sustainable farming techniques, sewing, and computer literacy.
How we work
ASC works by supporting and inspiring local communities to turn their dreams and ideas into viable, sustainable projects.
Typically, our projects are in areas where we have or can acquire, local contacts and local knowledge.
ASC foundation ensures that each project we take on must fulfil the following criteria:
Community owned and driven by the local community
Viable vision: the project must be viable with a realistic and sustainable costed action plan
Capacity and Capable:the project must have access to the required knowledge and skills
Adequate Resources: the project must have a fundraising plan for project completion, ongoing operating costs and a sustainable future.
ASC firstly, identifies suitable community projects that meet the criteria. We then support the work through sharing our expertise, providing strong project management and ensuring a robust fundraising programme. We seek strategic partnerships to access additional expertise from other foundations and organisations.
