Education is key to emancipation - and in Ky Sinclair’s street-based school, no money is exchanged, only skills and gratitude. His recipe is simple yet powerful - linking people with skills and the desire to teach with those who have the desire to learn. This he describes as not a handout, but a hand up.

In this touching and deeply personal talk, Ky explains the origins of the Homelove project and how it is empowering individuals by transferring knowledge and skills.

Ky Sinclair is founder and trainer of The Homelove Project, an innovative community development project that seeks to empower through education, insisting that if the project does not work for ‘the least of these’, then it doesn’t work at all. He has been involved in nonviolent direct action advocating for the removal of children from detention as a part of Love Makes A Way actions. He continues to train people on a weekly basis on the streets of Perth at no cost.
