Change Architects in Romania


Nowadays, young people in Romania come upon numerous challenges. According to the  European Commission over 46% of youths are at risk of poverty and social exclusion, percentage higher than the national average (37%). The educational system was not able to attract, prepare and maintain high-performance educators and couldn’t provide the students with access to practical, life context and authentic skills.


To address these complex challenges, young people need to become changemakers. Youth have the capacity to address socio-economic challenges if they are inspired and encouraged to pursue their dreams. We are building a program to work with Teachers, students, and professionals to help the kids become the changemakers of tomorrow.

Microfranchising Model Design in Suriname


The Microfranchising Project in Suriname entailed the creation of Authorized Service Workshops (ASW) to work as micro-franchisees retailing Yamaha Units, spare parts and after sales services in coastal and rural communities in Suriname. Through bringing these services closer to the client, the ASW owners can eliminate costs incurred by clients when traveling to Paramaribo to repair the engine, and reduce the wait time for receiving repairs and spare parts. As part of New Development Experience (NDE) team the AllGrow founders helped in designing the micro franchising model as well conducted site visits and evaluation with all the stakeholders. The project is part of Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) Sustainable Microenterprises in Rural Communities in Suriname through Microfranchising.
