Our method of co-creation is founded on scientific and systematic approaches from social science disciplines that help imagine new social possibilities. 

We co-design ways in which women initiate community development and explore their desires for a meaningful social and public life.

Team of Aesha

AeSha derives its meaning -  “Her……. Strong Desire” from an amalgamation of different languages in India. The team aspires to live by this name and the infinite possibilities it creates. We work with the desire for consistent and continuous learning to meaningfully contribute to development practice around us. 


Each of our projects are anchored by ‘Project Weavers’, who act as connections between our core-team and different collaborators  in specific sites and projects. Akin to the act of weaving, they bring community members together, connect knowledge of different AeSha members, and draw learning across the board for our grassroots lab.
