IDEO Tackles Ending World Poverty

IDEO.org has a mission to bring human-centered design to the people who need it most — those facing poverty every day. They’re teaming up with nonprofits, social enterprises and foundations to create solutions for the world’s most dire poverty-related challenges. Imagine a world without poverty. IDEO is hoping you will help them create it.

From IDEO; “Through Human-Centered Design projects, we’re bringing stability, hope, and dignity to communities around the world that are wrestling with poverty. Along the way, we’re sharing what we learn and accomplish with everyone—so we’re all learning together. And through the IDEO.org Fellowship Program, we’re fostering a community of future leaders with expertise in design thinking, then letting them loose on the world.”
