BASED-UK serves to support social and economic development learning and action as part of the Bahá’í International Community’s commitment to building a more unified, equitable and ever-advancing global civilisation. BASED-UK collaborates with overseas development agencies to assist them in their efforts to build capacity in local populations to take charge of their own social and economic development through the application of spiritual principles and systems of knowledge.

Our inspiration

“If development is to be defined at all, then it will have to be in terms of the building of capacity in individuals, communities and institutions to participate effectively in weaving the fabric of a materially and spiritually prosperous world civilization.”    

Dr Farzam Arbab in Harper (ed.) (2000) The Lab, the Temple, and the Market

Our Projects

The projects which BASED-UK supports are those which have developed from grass-roots initiatives and are self-governing and have the potential to become self-sustaining. BASED-UK is able to offer assistance to these organisations when they are scaling up their operations in order to bring benefit to larger numbers of people.
