The Thoughtful Path: Munsieville is not a typical charity project - it is all about empowerment, local decision-making and partnership. Each of the three Thoughtful Path action hubs is locally 'owned' and managed and functions as a key operational partner, bound into the mission to see all children of the township given the opportunity to grow up into a healthy, productive adult.

In addition, the programme draws on the expertise and professional knowledge of many local partners and stakeholders, including:

-        Mogale City Social Services Department
-        Krugersdorp Child Welfare
-        Safe & Sound Learning Association
-        LifeLine West Rand

Project HOPE UK also has established academic partnerships with:

-        Brunel University (UK)
-        Monash University (SA)
-        East Tennessee State University/ College of Public Health (US)
-        University of Pretoria (SA)

These collaborations are vital to measure and refine the project so that it can be replicated in other disadvantaged communities worldwide. They help us to develop a new, evidence-based 'model of excellence' and will ensure that The Thoughtful Path brings measurable, community-wide social and economic uplift leading to sustainable, long-term development.
