What is Design for Change?
Design For Change (DFC) is a global movement that cultivates the ‘I Can’ mindset in every child. DFC was born out of the conviction that children are not helpless, the optimism that change is possible and the belief that they can drive it. It equips children with the tools to be aware of the world around them, believe that they play a role in shaping that world, and take action toward a more desirable, sustainable future. Children get an opportunity to be recognized not only for their academic achievements but also for being socially aware and proactive change agents in their community.
Today, Design for Change is in over 60 countries and we are happy to have Hsin Wei (Kate) Hsu (DFC Taiwan), Shirine Al Khudari and Jaafar Wahbeh (DFC Jordan) and Miguel Luengo (DFC Spain) share their experiences of running this movement in their own countries.
