What We Do

Change is a youth-led development agency working in the field of green innovations, research on renewable energy, water security and social business development. We involve youths directly with our projects and activities which help them to develop confidence, improve project management capacity and nurture creativity. Since September, 2012 CHANGE has been working with various national and international development cooperation and acquired goodwill by implementing project successfully. Impacts of our projects have been widely covered in various print and electronic media throughout the whole journey. CHANGE is also the global partner of Liter of Light which is working in more than 37 countries promoting low cost affordable lighting solutions. So far, we have worked directly with GIZ, U.S. Embassy, DFID, Good Planet Belgium, North South University and may other educational institutions. We developed efficiency improvement ideas for urban slum and industries known as Solar Bottle Light and Solar Pipe Light, affordable local solar lanterns, UV solar water purifiers, local solar irrigation pumps and solar street lights. Our main mission is to address social and environmental crisis with locally adaptable and affordable ideas. Our vision is to strengthen local capacity and innovations to address challenges in a sustainable manner. We strongly believe simplicity could be the best solution to meet any mega crisis.
