Sondering Slate is a youth driven project started by 2 youths that enjoy creating and sharing moments. They chanced upon the word ‘Sonder’, a word made up by The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows. Based on the website, sonder meant “the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own”. Inspired by the meaning, the youths wanted to share moments of life with everyone, and this birthed the project Sondering Slate.
Together with their interest in starting a business, Design For Good gave them the opportunity to learn, explore, and develop their entrepreneur skills. Till this date, Sondering Slate has sold more than 80 T-shirts and conducted a digital art class for the children from Beyond Social Services. Every purchase made by you allows more children from disadvantaged communities to create and share their own moments through digital arts.
