South Asia

In 2009 an experienced leader of InnerCHANGE struck out to establish a second CRM-IC site in Asia. After visiting several countries, learning about the challenges and opportunities that the poor face in those contexts, considering social and cultural factors, and conducting two years of first-hand research, she chose the capital of “the Delta”. She was then joined by another individual who had been working in the region and a young family from the U.S. The fledgling team spent a year going deeper in language study and neighborhood research before immersing themselves in a lower-middle class, densely populated Muslim neighborhood where they are the only foreign residents. This team recently established a professional leadership development company as the primary vehicle for influencing local leaders and seeing systemic change that impacts the lives of the poor.

The team’s leadership business in this creative access country is looking for socially conscious investors and additional staff to join them.
