I am passionate about:
Empowering the most marginalized- persons living with disabilities, persons in conflict and post-conflict scenarios- through the intersection of education, innovation and technology.
A little known fact about me is:
I've lived out of a suitcase, and on friends couches for the last 4 years to make my dreams a reality.
ADA is a nonprofit based out of NYC. They've been building assistive technology from cardboard since 2001. They travel to organizations and train social workers and the community on how to use and build local resources. I thought perhaps you were one of those organizations. If not, I HIGHLY suggest reaching out to them. Their Founder, Alex, has won many awards for her work in this field and they are highly experienced in the approach and methodology you are taking.
Aside from this, I'm traveling to Kigali next month to test the basic prototype my team and I are building for children living with communication disabilities. We are targeting cognitive and communication in inclusive schools. It'd be great to meet you and your team! We'll be in town from June 6-18.
