Everyone can be a Changemaker!
The Changemaker Pathway is a self-paced discovery experience for anyone who wish to unlock their superpowers to create positive changes in the community. Here, you will find insights, tools and people who will help you empathize, lead and collaborate with others to solve real needs in the world.
We offer 4 programs to challenge, build and transform your skills and mindsets as a Changemaker. The first stage of the Pathway guides you to discover more about yourself, your community and develop your skills to create positive changes. The second stage focuses on teaming up, creating solutions and taking action to tackle specific challenges. You can choose to participate in any or all of them according to your own pace and readiness.
Explore communities, their needs and different social issues, while discovering your sense of purpose.
Build your changemaking muscles to make a positive impact by stretching your skills and knowledge.
An innovation process to create solutions collaboratively for sustainable development challenges in specific contexts.
Turn your changemaking ideas into reality with our support and influence others to become Changemakers.
