What is Design for Change?

Empowering an 'I CAN' mindset

Design for Change (DFC) is an innovative and exciting project for children that might just change the world! It aims to empower children by helping them make a shift towards an ‘I Can’ mindset.

Through DFC project work, children learn to believe in themselves, their potential and their abilities to solve problems. By encouraging children to use design thinking they design solutions to problems in their community and then make it happen. The results are breath taking.

Design for Change originated in India and its impact was formidable. More and more children in India became part of the social movement, solving problems from forced marriages to potholes inthe road. This amazing project is spreading as other countries have become infected with the ‘I CAN’ mindset. Children across the globe are proving that they have what it takes to be able to ‘design’ the future that the world desires.
