17% of the world's population are living on less than $1.25 a day. This equates to 1.2 billion people living in extreme poverty, today.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that "everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and his family" - we're working towards this goal.

From housing to sanitation and infrastructure, our projects address the real needs of the communities we work with. We believe good design improves lives, and should be accessible to all.

Discussing failure

On the global day of giving in 2016, we held an event to breakdown the stigmas surrounding failure in the world of social impact design.

We surveyed the audience that night, and wanted to summarise what you told us. How do you feel about your own failures? Why were you interested in our event? Did it change your opinion about failure?
