Purpose Equity Frameworks Website
Category: Website Design for Design for Social Change

Care with Dignity / Khud Se Pooche
Category: Mix Media/Moving Image in Design for Social Change
Purpose helped launch the Khud se Pooche, or Care with Dignity, campaign to build awareness around what dignified healthcare means for women in Bihar, and why it is such a necessity. Through community events such as roadshows and college events, art installations, an ambassador program, and the co-creation of the “Khud Se Pooche Pin”- a symbol representing dignity, repair, unity and protection- Purpose has been able to engage and collaborate with more than 10,000 women in the conversation around healthcare.
Right to Care
Category: Branding for Design for Social Change
Purpose designed the Right to Care campaign against the backdrop of the broken childhood education and care system in the U.S., that has been exacerbated throughout the pandemic. With a goal of building awareness around the human side of the childcare crisis & its possible solutions, the campaign is rooted in uniting families, caregivers, educators & advocates to push narrative and policy change. Through social media content, a new digital community hub, online resources, a website, focus groups & a targeted advocacy campaign, Right to Care has built a powerful and visible coalition of impacted families, professionals and advocates working to make real change in the child care system.
