What we do
What We Offer
Asar is uniquely positioned to provide and facilitate development of change strategies that is goal oriented and impactful. Asar believes that transformative change is only possible when the landscape and context in which the change is sought is clearly mapped, researched and well understood to develop innovative pathways and logical theories of change. The team in Asar has many years of experience in designing these campaign and communication processes and strategies.
We believe that data and analytics should form the basis for debate and informed decision making. Often narratives are skewed because of significant data gaps or lack of communication and narratives built to ensure information is available to key stakeholders. Asar believes in linking research to actionable change. This means asking the right questions relevant to the context and ensuring that the findings reach the right audiences.
The challenges facing us today can only be resolved if we work as a collective to raise awareness on the issues and find, create alignment on the solutions and ensure that they are implemented. In order for the sum of actions to be much greater than their parts, it becomes essential to facilitate a collaborative space for various stakeholders to work together. This is a role that Asar is able to play as we have the ability to build new networks and provide the support required to catalyse collaboration and collective momentum for change. We currently play a convening role to support groups working for clean air in the region.
Public engagement and citizen outreach is at the heart of making change. Organisations are constantly trying to find ways of engaging people on issues to create awareness and empower action. This often takes up many man-days of conception and planning when you want to take your issue to people using multiple online & offline platforms. Our team in Asar have decades of experience in not only conceiving ideas that simplify complex issues but also turn them into a time bound project plans.
We are a team of researchers, political analysts, communication specialists, strategists, mobilisers and generalists. Most importantly collaborators and team players. We collectively have more than a 100 years of experience working on issues of social justice and environmental sustainability.
