We warmly invite to come be a part of this knowledge session about this GAP initiative to help you become a leader who can drive massive change whether through corporate social responsibility or through social work. Read on to see which GAP hat (Change Maker or Change Leader) you would like to wear!

Global Action on Poverty (GAP) accelerates the impact produced by a diverse set of committed, passionate individuals ('Changemakers'), who are tirelessly working to bring people out of poverty through a myriad of ways.

GAP provides these Changemakers with a range of resources and capabilities through Partners to bring a step-up change in their initiative. Partners from different spheres such as Academia, Corporates, Foundations/charities, Impact Investors, Governments and others have joined hands with GAP to empower these Changemakers to make poverty history.

Who can be a GAP Changemaker?

If you are the head of an NGO or a social enterprise or even an individual executing a project, you can become a GAP Changemaker. Size does not matter, what matters is that you are committed, passionate and are already on the journey in making a difference to communities that are in poverty or less advantaged. You also need to have;

  • Worked on projects in agriculture, education, livelihoods & enterprise, water, sanitation & energy, healthcare & financial inclusion
  • A minimum of 1 year of engagement in your initiative and ready for further support
  • The drive to make your initiative a success and be open to growing yourself and your team
  • Openness to new perspectives, ideas and be ready to adopt new ways to increase your impact
  • Deep commitment to poverty eradication and ready to work with others to make it happen

Who can be a GAP Change Leader?

Ideal for people with 15+ years of experience, who will co-own a project for one year and contribute 1 day per month and bring an Intensive Catalyst that can engage in the initiative with them.

As a corporate Change Leader this is an opportunity for you to contribute through your skills and acumen and knowledge to a social Changemaker’s initiative to take it to growth, impact and sustainability. Changemakers are heads of  NGO’s and Social Enterprises. This is a 12-month engagement where you will be monitoring the growth of the initiative on month on month basis, there will also be a site visit to meet the Changemaker’s community/team, know them better and contribute more deeply.

What do you gain?

In our experience, applying your skills, competencies and knowledge to a social cause expands your leadership capacities!

  • As a Change Leader, you play a leading role in transforming an organization – and in turn, several hundred livelihoods and families
  • As you engage with the Changemaker over a span of 12 months, the visibility towards tangible outcomes and the impact created is very high – giving a powerful sense of accomplishment
  • The environment that Changemakers operate in is unpredictable, and often challenged by resource scarcity. As a Change Leader you will need to come up with innovative strategies and solutions which can be truly transformative
  • Dealing with ambiguity will be the norm and a great capability to build
  • Such experiences also inculcate an entrepreneurial mindset and encourage forward-thinking – leadership traits that can only be honed through real-world experiences
  • And importantly, we have found that working with such diverse teams and circumstances have strengthened values of empathy, integrity and humility in our Intensive teams
