We believe in identifying and overcoming the barriers amongst social practisioners and the problems in the implementation of any design project.
We intend to use design as a tool for community and social development projects, specially for rural and semi-urban communities.
Design, sustainability and development are at the core of Samatva's guiding principles. To implement design for social development is our vision. We identify barriers faced by social practitioners in implementing any project in the field of arts, crafts, spaces, streets, innovation and rural entrepreneurship. We help in finding solutions to community problems using a human-centric approach by keeping both project requirement and beneficiaries in mind. We also document culture-laden stories around us.
We facilitate social development with our due intelligence in design through implementation, documentation, impact assessment, scaling-up of a project using the Theory of Change process in the fields of arts, crafts, spaces, streets, innovation and rural entrepreneurship.
We believe that when individuals with an aspiration for change collaborate, different perspectives come to light and solutions can be approached in a way we can only imagine.
We partner with visionary and philanthropic entities like
We meet up monthly at our studio with like-minded designers, environmentalists, activists, ideators, creative artists, basically anybody with the heart for social development.
Every jam addresses one identified local problem and we brainstorm together.
The design workshop in our backyard allows anybody to test their ideas at a prototype level thus accelerating the change making process. We invite and try to bring onboard activists and organizations who can reach out to people and implement change at a larger scale.
We tell culture-laden stories from our surroundings which enlighten and amaze us every day.
Everyone at Samatva is an avid traveler, from our designers and writers to our founders. We love capturing unique cultures, traditions, arts & crafts from our surroundings wherever we go.
