MEETING PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE
In the last three years, we’ve worked with a broad range of people, communities, and organizations. During that time we have been fortunate to work consistently with a core group of communities from around the world and develop a deeper understanding of their lives, challenges and opportunities.

BUILDING A GLOBALLY DIVERSE TALENT BASE

INVESTING IN THE FUTURE OF DESIGN
Dalberg Design is incubating the Nairobi Design Institute (NDI), an impact design academy based out of our Nairobi presence. Our shared mission with NDI is to drive the future of innovation and impact in Africa through the power of design.
NDI is led by our Creative Lead, Tosh Juma, with support from our entire design team. Through NDI, we are piloting a model that builds capacity and opportunity for the next generation of creative leaders that could be extended across the continent as well as to other markets in which we are embedded, such as India. NDI students address complex challenges through design practices and deep community engagement. NDI welcomed its first class of nine students in April, 2017.

As the founding partner of NDI, we are investing our resources and time to bring this vision to reality leveraging the Dalberg Design model, as well as the broader Dalberg network, to shape the curriculum and bring the highest level of design thinking to local talent working in the region. Through this deep and meaningful collaboration, we will work side-by-side to address complex social challenges in a more equitable, sustainable and human-centered manner.
