Opportunities for 100 million people

Niya was founded in 2021 with the belief that talent is everywhere, but opportunity isn’t.

We hold a team spirit like no other and are passionate about providing equal access and opportunity to all.

We share the belief that background should not be a barrier to opportunity and work hard to support the mobilisation of underrepresented people.

Our origins

Situated on a branch of the Silk Road in the Taklamakan Desert lies a famous commercial hub named Niya.

Connecting China to Central Asia, the old town  welcomed travellers and traders from all corners of the globe. It became a thriving, diverse community, where cultures and ideas were exchanged as people sought refuge from their travels.

That's our vision for Niya’s Social Mobility Network...

A thriving community of people brought together with the shared goal of advancing social mobility.
