What Drives Us

We have blended design and systems thinking together in our efforts to support our decision science ecosystem. While most design practices focus purely on end-users, we apply this blended approach to additionally assess effectiveness of our interventions and inform future strategies.

Our aim is not only to ensure that our information is protected, clean and reliable, but we will also help in structure and design of programmes from ideation to implementation.



We add value by

  • collecting and analyzing field data in order to quantify social challenges

  • mastering innovation methodology to achieve scaled and systematic transformation

  • designing actionable interventions that address complex challenges at scale

  • leveraging multi-disciplinary technology and analytics to trigger social change
