    • By empowering local communities socially and economically especially women: i.e combining financial capital with local community expertise and resources for educational and community improvement;
    • By developing and optimising an effective partnership between schools and their local communities designed to find practical ways and means of tackling the unavoidably difficult socio-economic problems schools and communities face; and more importantly tackling social inequalities.
