Who We Are

IPE Global Centre for Knowledge and Development (CKD) was founded by IPE Global Ltd to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion, focusing on transforming the lives of women, adolescent, and children. We acknowledge that the traditionally disadvantaged groups continue to be the poorest across specific geographies (Multidimensional Poor Index 2018). To respond to this divide and the urgent need to improve health, education and standard of living, we empower communities to lead change, network with private and public stakeholders and leverage cutting edge technology.

Genesis

Center for Knowledge & Development (CKD) is a not-for-profit organization incubated in 2013 by IPE Global Ltd, an Indian international development organization with a track record of implementing multi-sectoral, large-scale, and high-impact development projects and solutions across continents.

IPE Global's 20+ years of experience showed the presence of several intractable developmental problems related to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) around the globe. Intensive research intermixed with field experience predicated the need for a singular focus on women, adolescents and children and sustained efforts across health, nutrition, education and 21st century skills, livelihood and employability for maximum impact.

CKD is mission-driven to co-create sustainable, cross-disciplinary solutions that are effective and scalable.
