Designing a more equitable world

A people-focused design and technology organisation

At Catalpa, we work with communities around the globe to create change through design and technology.

We believe aid and development can work better, and we’re committed to improving it. We integrate technology and behavioural insights with locally-driven solutions to create lasting change.

Our projects connect people, make information accessible, and nudge behaviours for social good. They build evidence and relationships for people to make more informed decisions—whether that’s when to visit a medical clinic, how to engage kids in classrooms, or where to direct aid funding.

No matter the topic, we put people at the centre of our design process.

We use human-centred design and rigorous research to make sure our projects meet people’s needs and encourage positive behaviours. We believe technology should be intuitive, user-friendly, enjoyable and simple.
