Social Policy

Real change comes when individuals get together to pursue a common good. At IDEAS we believe that individuals and companies have the ability to help the poor and underprivileged. Our work in IDEAS Academy, a secondary education centre for underprivileged youth as well as IDEAS Autism Centre, an intervention care centre for children with autism from low income households demonstrate how it is possible for private actors can help play a more direct role in society.

Under the theme of inclusive development our work covers policies in the areas of:


  • Ethnicity and religion
  • Healthcare
  • Inclusive Growth
  • Education
