Our projects have a positive impact. From improved access to safely managed WASH services, to healthy behaviours adopted by communities, to a strengthened role for artists’ groups as change leaders, and increased social capital, all resulting in healthier and happier communities.

A·B·C for Sustainability

Our A·B·C for Sustainability™ model includes three complementary and synergetic components: Access, Behaviour Change, and Capital.

The SABC approach is at the heart of this model.
Our SABC approach - One Drop

Our Social Art for Behaviour Change (SABC) approach creates locally inspired programs that modify behaviours towards healthy practices around Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH). We empower communities to take ownership of projects over time, which ensures their sustainability.

Through innovative creative processes that involve open participation, SABC interventions bring out individual, interpersonal, community, and societal commitment. These processes are designed to inspire, activate, and sustain the practice of desired behaviours, in accordance with the needs of each project.

Knowledge & Learning

In our quest to achieve sustainable change, we innovate; we co-create with artists’ groups, partners and communities; we connect with people across different sectors; we take risks... and we always keep learning.
