building solutions for human development that are evidence-based,
data-driven and owned by the communities we serve. Founded in 1971, Pact
works with partners to build resilience, improve accountability, and
strengthen knowledge and skills for sustainable social impact.

– Pact has a dedicated innovation practice for finding and scaling
solutions to social problems in the form of products, processes, and
wider business models with a focus on human centered design. Pact

tease out new ideas. Pact exists to help create a world where those who

solutions and take ownership of their future. The Innovation team
