EQUALS was founded over 25 years ago, with the dream of promoting and developing human potential. Throughout our history we have been involved in philanthropic projects and activities and the promotion of human rights within the local and wider community.
As our capacity has grown, so has our ability to meet the needs of a changing world. Over time EQUALS has established new collaborations with government, industry and the not-for profit sector, and innovations in service delivery that have contributed towards social advancement, and act as a vehicle towards achieving our overarching vision and mission.
EQUALS has a vision of a new world based on universal spiritual principles. A prerequisite to this is the equality of women and men.
