Stories of Change - Case Study Challenge 2019 - 20

Azim Premji University has been organizing the ‘Stories of Change' - Case Study Challenge, on documenting good practices of social change from NGOs, government programmes, Social Enterprises and other organizations directly involved in design and implementation of development interventions.

The Case Study Challenge aims to capture reflections and learning, including documenting the boundaries and limitations of social change interventions. The University wishes to recognise and honour efforts towards social change and contribute to the body of knowledge about contemporary development practice by encouraging and enabling practitioners to document and reflect upon their initiatives. Such cases will subsequently become available to Universities and development practitioners for the purpose of learning and teaching/training. Through this Case Study Challenge we also hope to develop a sustainable network with practitioners, NGOs, policy makers, researchers and students interested in knowledge creation and dissemination.

The 2nd edition of 'Stories of Change - case study challenge' (launched in April 2019) received a good number of submissions from across the country. Our evaluating panel shortlisted 17 case studies for the final assessment. It was a tough job for the panel to decide the winners as each of the 17 entries was very good.
