What we do.

We envision a thriving world and work to make that vision real by igniting and supporting human potential.

We practice at the intersection of evaluation and design, with a special focus on people. Our skills in asking questions, making new things, and holding people as whole and capable are useful in a wide variety of settings—although we are most often found in the field of international development.
