As part of the MIT D-Lab: Development class, four students went to El Salvador in January 2015. They created hands-on workshops to empower the children from the Barefoot Angels program to improve their personal and economic lives. Victoria Tam '16 put togther this wonderful video about projects she and her team members worked on.
D-Lab: Development addresses issues of technological improvements at the micro level for developing countries—in particular, how the quality of life of low-income households can be improved by adaptation of low cost and sustainable technologies. Students form project teams to partner with mostly local level organizations in developing countries.
