Our Focus Areas

Challenging gender inequality

The Gender Lab focuses on addressing gender issues through innovative interventions. It aims to develop leadership in young people so they can break gender stereotypes and form a generation that celebrates all genders.

12,000 participants in our young women's leadership program since 2011

Connecting communities

Through our service learning fellowship and community initiatives, we foster youth-led urban collectives for learning, expression, action and dialogue. We aim to create active citizens who can mobilize the strength of collectives to achieve social change.
