What We Do

We help organizations solve complex problems

Glean enables people to improve their world by helping them to identify and build on their inherent strengths. Using human-centered design methodology, we’ve worked across continents, countries, languages and sectors to deliver social change that is appropriate for its context. We don’t believe in pre-designed magic solutions, we believe in the power of people to make lasting change.

Our Partners

We work with NGOs, companies and community groups to help them change the world for the better.

The first step of our work with you is listening, and learning what you know about what you need. We collaborate with you to help you to draw out and understand the different strengths and challenges of the situation you’re working in, and then keep working together to facilitate group learning and ideation of solutions. Then, together, we test our ideas, and keep testing and improving them to make sure they’re ready for everyone to use.

Good food is better food.

We helped Johanniter to move quickly, designing quantitative rapid research that would show them what was needed and where, and to make a plan for long-term impact.
