Conscious Step was founded by three friends that weren’t happy with the problems faced by the world today.
They were deeply concerned with the gravity of these problems and the potential implications on all of us. Considering their importance, they felt the awareness surrounding these issues and the organizations fighting them was lacking. And they felt that if we are to have real a chance to rid our world of these problems, ordinary people needed to play a larger part in their solutions. It was a serendipitous collision of these three individuals and their collective pasts that led to the creation of Conscious Step.
Hassan was a medical doctor interning at the World Health Organisation. Here he learned of the development framework agreed upon by all nations in the world, the eight Millennium Development Goals.
Adam was a marketing strategist and director of Engineers Without Borders. Here he saw an opportunity for non-profits to pursue their mission with new vigour if the load of fundraising and awareness building could be relieved.
Prashant was a finance and microfinance expert who left the promise of a career on Wall St in pursuit of meaningful work abroad. Here he realized that convenience and recognition were effective levers in inspiring action toward the causes people held dear to their hearts - and that sometimes the simplest solutions are the best ones.
