Safe Agua Colombia Development Seminar

Recipient Institution: Art Center College of Design
Principal Investigator: Penny Herscovitch
Grant Amount: $24,750

The Safe Agua Colombia program works with families living in Colombia's slum communities to design and develop products, systems, and services with a focus on water to help overcome the cycle of poverty. Students will work with end users to co-create radically affordable products and systems with sustainable, scalable, real-world implementation. Resulting technologies will address specific problems such as illness and water conservation, and will develop opportunities for entrepreneurs to generate income.
