AT DESIGN FOR SOCIAL IMPACT LAB

We are redefining social impact through equity-centered design

We are on a mission to revolutionise the social impact sector.

We understand that all too often, the people who have been historically underserved, structurally disadvantaged and impacted by crises in our societies are left behind and excluded from decision-making when it comes to developing programs, policies, and research that can truly improve their lives.

We provide high quality, applied learning and hands-on social impact courses for organisations and individuals who want to take effective action, shifting from paternalistic notions of ‘aid’ towards global justice and solidarity. 

HOW WE DO THIS

We offer quality-assured learning experiences designed and faciltated with people who bring lived experience of being recipients and providers of aid to the table.

We provide strategic guidance, design consultations and conduct equity audits for organisations seeking to set up or improve their social impact projects

We give back. As a certified social enterprise a minimum of ten percent of our profit goes towards supporting social impact projects each year.
