Art Center College of Design – Design and Social Entrepreneurship

Art Center College of Design has partnered with the non-profit organization Un Techo Para Mi Pais to develop socially driven products/systems that act as change agents for people living without running water. The class was first focused on slums in Chile and now it is being repeated in Peru.

I am in Peru right now with the team of Un Techo Para mi Pais and 11 other students soaking up the beautiful culture and learning as much as we can before we come back to Los Angeles to develop projects that will hopefully have an impact on communities living without running water.

The following link goes deeper into the NGO Un Techo Para Mi Pais and the projects done in the past:
