social purpose.

A start-up business incubator empowering entrepreneurial veterans. A farm stand providing locally grown produce to disadvantaged communities. A science institute offering classes to aspiring teachers in West Africa.

These are just a handful of the unique ways people around the world are making a difference. With compassion in their hearts and purpose in their actions, unsung heroes are fearlessly addressing critical social needs in communities near and far.

At Perkins+Will, we’ve been touched by the work of these individuals and inspired by their commitment to do what’s right. We want you to be inspired, too. That’s why we started collecting their stories and publishing them here. Meet the ordinary people doing extraordinary things to make our world a better place.
