Our Story


We’re on a mission to enhance the sexual and reproductive health of all young people. To do this, we’re cultivating teams who’ll use participatory research and design to sow and scatter the seeds of innovative, equity-focused solutions to real-world challenges. 

We believe in uplifting doers, dreamers, and changemakers with diverse backgrounds and wide-ranging lived experiences—particularly those prepared to get their hands dirty, try new things, and adapt to evolving conditions on the ground.
