Together Changes 


Our purpose: Better futures through education – theirs and ours.

Theirs… by transforming the lives of disadvantaged children through developing key character strengths and building relevant knowledge.
Ours… because education promotes productivity, tolerance, a stronger belief in democracy and civic participation, and helps resist recruitment to violent extremism.

About Us

‘Aprender’ is the Portuguese verb ‘To Learn’.

As we work we learn, learn how to consistently improve ourselves, learn from the amazing people with whom we work, learn from the latest global research about the basics of education.

The way we work was (and still is) developed in partnership with our partners, the Total Institute in Goiânia, Brazil.
This shared DNA has been fundamental in growing our approach to working cross-culturally. Our clients choose the pace and area for change.


We support, bring resources and build relationships to ensure sustainability.


Our Design Thinking Approach is called 'Apto'.

Apto means that we work together with all stakeholders and this makes our work both personal and highly contextual.

Being together, planning together and working together doesn’t just change how we work - Together changes everything.
