Mission & Values

Our mission is to create sustainable development impact by enabling low- and middle-income country governments to respond to their own challenges by supplying outstanding junior advisors in full-time, two-year positions.

  • Problem-driven and politically sensitive

    Fellows fill gaps in capacity identified by governments themselves: their work is tailored to ensure it is responsive and relevant to the local context. Each placement’s purpose is different, the Fellows we recruit are equally so.

  • Demand-led

    Fellows are only sourced for placements where governments request, and can accommodate, them.

  • Responsive to evidence

    We are committed to continuously improving the programme to ensure governments and Fellows get the most out of it. We have developed an innovative monitoring and evaluation framework to help us do this.

  • Independent

    Our autonomy means we are accountable and not bound by external agendas.
