Deki’s theory of change
It is our mission to empower communities to be free from extreme poverty; helping families to develop sustainable livelihoods and become financially resilient is at the heart of everything we do.
During our last field trip to Togo, we performed a participatory needs assessment with the people and communities we support.
Collaborating with IADES, our field partner, we have developed four programmes which address the needs of the communities and which will ensure long lasting sustainable change.
We will endeavour to focus on increasing economic inclusion, gender equality and expanding our rural outreach to make sure that we continue to reach the communities where our services are needed the most.
We believe that given the opportunity, anyone can thrive. By supporting one of our programmes, you are investing in lasting positive change and empowering communities to become agents of change for the next generation.
