About us

We are an international digital media accelerator leading on young-people-centered solutions that bring about social change.

Our vision

We believe in a world in which young people, in all their diversity, confidently claim their rights, assume their place in society and drive social change.

Our mission

We accelerate the impact of young-people-centred changemakers by co-creating digital media and learning solutions based on data insights and mutual learning.

Our values

We thrive when we explore and when we ask questions. Our eagerness to learn leads us to new paths. 

It’s part of our DNA to stay receptive for new insights and adapt our behaviours, habits and approaches to changing circumstances.  

Operating at the intersection of digital media and international development shapes our creative nature; we continuously reinvent, rethink and refine to get to fresh and unique approaches.   

We believe that together is the only way forward. The whole always has a greater effect than the sum of its parts.  

We contribute to a world where young people’s perspectives and voices in all their diversity matter. Inclusivity is inherent not only in what we do, but also in the way we work. Both with each other and with others. 


We work with changemakers, local organisations or individuals who use or strive to use digital media to unleash the potential of young people in their contexts. They can be young people themselves.

Safe, inclusive, and reliable digital spaces young people

Human rights equally apply online and offline.

We specifically focus on places and contexts where the human rights of young people are under threat. This includes limitations in connectivity and access to digital spaces, exposure to mis/dis/mal-information, and discriminatory practices.

We contribute to making digital spaces more safe, inclusive and reliable. This allows for young people to exercise their rights to universally and equally access the internet, meaningfully connect in digital spaces and express themselves freely, openly communicate their opinions and access pluralistic information.

Our aspirational goal

By 2030, through digital media, one billion young people can make informed decisions, advance their rights and affect society.
