"Engaging and empowering youth and communities in the development of solutions is among the most effective ways to catalyze sustainable development."
We work in partnership with youth and communities to find simple, low-cost, low-tech ways of improving sanitation and hygiene in rural and remote settings.
How do we approach these issues? Using innovative, participatory approaches to science education and social entrepreneurship.
