I am also inspired by Katu Kekulo. The survival rate she achieved argues well for your submission. I want to pull together a team of students, graduate and undergraduate, to further support your idea. I am currently at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard doing a one year fellowship. I have met students from multiple disciplines (and universities) interested in making a contribution. Have you thought any more about the elements of the kit? What do you think I should rally a team to work on? How can we work together?

Deb, I too am inspired by Fatu Kekula's amazing story and her high success rate makes me believe your submission is critical. Also, I think local Liberian grassroots organizations could be involved with distributing the kits, educating about their use, and tracking and monitoring. I've begun to ID such groups. I'm joining your team and want to involve other students. I'm doing a yearlong fellowship at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and beginning to pull together other students from across the various colleges here at Harvard and other colleges and universities. I'd love to talk with you further asap.
