Lead the Change is a 8 week program which takes 30 passionate
individuals on a rigorous journey to explore themselves inside-out, to
internalise the challenges (under issues like women empowerment &

on deep self-awareness and starting the process from within.
Beyond the program, we help participants build their social enterprise by
connecting them with mentors and helping them build a team.
