Our mission and vision
Brighter Communities Worldwide is a charity with a wealth of experience building sustainable communities in East Africa. Founded as Friends of Londiani in 2002, our model creates an enabling environment for communities to realise change.
Our vision is a world where strong, healthy communities can thrive, building sustainable livelihoods and brighter futures for all.
Our mission is to work in partnership with communities, to deliver programmes that enrich their lives and help create better futures for them and their families.
What makes us different is the way we work with communities at a local level, to empower people to create their own opportunities for a brighter future. We are committed to providing long term, positive change wherever we work in the world, because all communities have the right to create a sustainable future.
Our model creates an enabling environment for communities to realise change and uses a partnership based approach to deliver programmes that meet the needs of communities and individuals. Creating brighter communities means ensuring:
• Access to good, affordable healthcare
• Education to help people find a job and be able to articulate their needs
• An income that can sustain a family
• Healthier lives with a supply of clean water and better facilities
• Investing in women and girls to build stronger communities
Our strategic plan
Our new strategic plan for 2019 – 2023 sets out a pathway for sustained growth for the organisation. It was developed through a process of engagement with our partners, stakeholders, supporters and volunteers and responds to requests we are receiving from new communities in Kenya, Uganda and beyond to work with them. The plan sets out how we can respond to this demand while recognising there is still work to do in the communities we are currently working in.
