CHILDREN HAVE CHANGED A MILLION LIVES
CAN WE HELP THEM IMPACT A BILLION ?
In 2009, Design for Change was born out of the conviction that children are not helpless, that change is possible and the belief that they can drive it.
By using a simple 4 step framework FIDS (FEEL-IMAGINE-DO-SHARE), children have designed solutions for some of THEIR greatest challenges! Over the last 10 years, Design for Change has received over 30,000 solutions by children from over 65 countries which have addressed 10 Global Goals that have changed a million lives!
Today, to celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Gandhiji, Design for Change has curated some of the boldest, most easy to replicate solutions that can be taken to SCALE. This MARKETPLACE OF SOLUTIONS invites you to become an IMPACT CHAMPION and help change a billion lives!
