Guiding Philosophy

All around the world change is made possible through social movements. Countries are either moving forward or backward. Change is evolutionary, nothing is static. Through the organization of people and ideas, possibilities become boundless.

Karakoyun Strategies recognizes that people and grassroots movements are at the heart of political change. Social movements are either emboldened or halted by elections, or stop growing without the voice and participation of women and new generations of leaders. In the world of development, these concepts are too often overlooked or separated.

The most sophisticated campaigns across the world realize that through individual people, and grassroots movements, political transformations are made possible and more powerful. Door-to-door organizing, targeting and field, town hall forums and dialogue, are all the building blocks for meaningful change.
