APPROACH

Holistic, internalized, and transformational social change

The combined power of quality education and learning, building healthy habits and good social relationships, and eco-sustainability can significantly contribute to elevating overall wellbeing of both individuals and communities.

We believe for any change to be adopted and sustained, it needs to be internalized by both individuals and the community going through it. By creating widespread understanding and awareness, identifying and supporting agents of change (champions) within the community, and long-term vesting, we ensure the transition sustains.

Unlike the traditional one-problem-at-a-time approach, our solutions are consecutively applied in a community to bring transformational social change at multiple levels. The initiatives address a wide range of issues at both individual and community level.


PARTNERSHIPS

Meaningful alliances for lasting impact

Every initiative is an alliance of innovators, policy makers, nonprofit operating/implementation partners, investing partners (benefactors) and beneficiaries to create lasting sustainable solutions.
