Catalyzing social change
Solving communication, visibility, and knowledge management needs of development stakeholders
Equitable social development is the responsibility of everyone and a result of impactful initiatives. Impact is a function of program design, implementation and outreach to the relevant audience.
We at Creativelab, a specialized unit under ASSIST, strive to help your organization and its programs achieve optimum impact through maximum outreach.
Through a unique mix of contextualized social development, regional presence and innovative design capabilities we solve the communication, visibility and knowledge management needs of development stakeholders, such as NGOs, social enterprises, UN agencies, International Financing Institutions and others. We leverage on our 6 regional offices covering Asia and Africa and 15 years of experience implementing 200+ projects to deliver impact.
