Dear Partner and Well Wishers,

While it has been a truly enriching experience to run Design for Change for the last 9 years from Riverside Education Foundation in India, it was time for it to become a global entity, with a formal structure and a board leading the way forward.

On 25th May, 2018- Design for Change was formally organised as a not for profit entity - Design for Change, Global - based out of Boston and with branches in Madrid and India.

To offer their insights, wisdom and experience in shaping the vision of DFC Global of empowering every child with the I CAN MINDSET, it is my personal pleasure to introduce the first round of board members - invited from my global partners to guide us every two years.

I thank you for your continued support and committment to the cause of a more humanE world!
