How we do it

Our methodology is flexible and adaptable to different realities. Here we present the steps commonly used to reach the fruition of our projects.

Some premises:

  • We use human centered design;
  • Our projects are co-created with the help of our clients and beneficiaries. Oftenly they are a bond between companies and communities. The project must be, right from conception, a co-working activity also involving co-responsibility.;
  • Sustainability must be a main cause. It should guide our work to economically viable and socially fair results;
  • We believe development is a complex and interconnected concept. Most of the work undertaken by Raízes generates indirect and non-measurable impacts on people’s lives. Indeed, we love qualitative results;

Get to know

The first step in our project cycle is to understand the characteristics and specificities of a place and/or organization before we work with them. This research phase includes launching investigations that evaluate secondary data, executing research in the field, conducting interviews, visiting the location and/or creating consulting maps, images, reports and statistical data.
