Foundation Philosophy

Nagalaale Foundation is premised on the philosophy of African communality, “I am because we are, and we are because I am”. Our work in the communities is shaped by the understanding that the community is as good as the individuals that constitute it. An empowered community has to be a collection of empowered individuals. The livelihood conditions of a community are a product of the collective resourcefulness of its individual members. Since health, education and livelihood systems are critical pillars in building people’s resourcefulness, the transformation of communities begins with transformative change in these spheres. Nagalaale Foundation seeks to transform communities through inspiring empowered individuals to prioritize the common good in all they do.

Organisational Governance

Nagalaale Foundation is headed by a Board of Trustees, which provides strategic direction and oversight to the Secretariat. Headed by the Foundation Director, the Secretariat directs steers and oversees the operations of the Foundation’s major projects, including Nagalaale Community Health Center, Nagalaale Vocational Secondary School, and Nagalaale Country House. Each of these projects has a Project Lead, guided by an Advisory Committee, comprised of community members that represent those that the projects serve.
