Working at Project DEFY

We have always tried to think of ourselves as a collective of amazing individuals, beyond our identity as an organization. We strongly believe in the possibility of social change and empowerment and feel we will never be able to create this empowerment within communities that we work with, if we are incapable of empowering the individuals who work here. That without experiencing freedom of thought, joyful curiosity and fearless experimentation, we ourselves will be in no position to preach the same to others. And hence, a lot of our focus as a passionate community of changemakers is on the growth and learning of the individual who is a part of this team.
