The Mike Nightingale Fellowship was established in 2012 and is a registered charity in the UK. The charity aims to change lives through sustainable development and is presently active in South Africa, principally in Hout Bay, where it is leading or contributing to a number of projects. The charity sees its role as one of enabling improvements, by providing resources and skills that bridge critical gaps, which are often small but prove difficult to overcome. Applied judiciously in the right place and the right time, even small amounts of resources can help people with limited opportunities to develop their own skills and capacities to improve their own lives, and those of their families and communities.
By applying methods and approaches that can be readily replicated in other similar projects and places, resources can be deployed even more efficiently and sustainably. Lives will only be truly changed if the change is socially, economically and environmentally sustainable. The Fellowship will support changes that meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
