Glyph is dedicated to combating inequality in Asia. People lacking the resources, exposure and a conducive environment from very young lack the confidence, skills and relationships to capitalise on opportunities in life. When they try to acquire these skills and networks later on in life, it's so much more difficult for them to succeed and break out of a vicious cycle.
Glyph disrupts this cycle by offering kids and youth from lower income households or challenging family environments access to affordable privileges in life. Glyph‘s businesses provide highly subsidised, quality goods and services to its members which would otherwise be out of their economic reach.
