Imperial College London signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Head Held High Foundation(HHHF) on 2nd November 2016, with the mutual goal of exploring areas of collaboration within education and social development.
Under the auspices of the Gandhi Centre for Inclusive Innovation, the partnership will explore the development of a digital platform for learning modules, help with student engagement as students develop their social enterprise and social change ideas, design and deliver a leadership programme for GAPchangemakers in India/London, explore research topics in specific areas that GAP Changemakers are working within, and identify funding opportunities to enable both partners to participate in joint activities.
The Head Held High Foundation is a not-for-profit social enterprise, promoting other for-profit organizations working in mutual areas of interest. The organizations goal is to catalyse the transformation of illiterate villagers in India into capable workers while creating employment and business opportunities to encourage the creation of sustainable rural economies.
The collaboration will encompass both research and education activities, and we are very excited to be working with HHHF in the coming years.
