What we do

With our partners and team of experts we design and produce multi-year projects that foster 21st century life skills, cultural competency, and social entrepreneurship abilities in young people and women across Indonesia.

We do this through our 3 interlinking programs, each of which address specific skills sets to specific audiences but when combined cross-pollinate the diversity of knowledge and competences across communities.

Why 21st century life skills?

The climatic, technological, and social complexities of the 21st century need a more holistic sets of skills. These include soft skills in creative and critical thinking, problem solving and decision making, as well as interpersonal and team-working know-how.

Cultural competence compliments these with respect for diversity and the skills to connect and work across culture, which become most effective combined with social entrepreneurship that generates innovation and well-being for all!
