The Origin Charity
Registered Charity Number: 1178150
The Origin Charity helps indigenous and tribal communities in modernising parts of the world hold onto their unique identities without being left behind. Indigenous people deserve a chance to benefit equitably from development and we recognise that the best way to achieve this is through providing practical support tailored to their distinct situation.
Our projects will create new opportunities towards improved education and sustainable livelihoods for vulnerable women and young people. Our approach is to invest in local people by providing skills training and ongoing mentoring services so that they can become more self-reliant in wider society. The timing is critical as the Omo Valley tribes, the fragile environment they live in and the valuable cultures they embody are being determined by the fast-paced changes happening around them.
We believe in the capacity building impact of education whether it is formal schooling, outreach business training or basic life skills coaching. Knowledge given is treasured and can never be taken away.
