Final Pitch Edition: Addressing Income Challenges in Jordan

How can we ensure that vulnerable households have access to sufficient, predictable income that does not expose them to risks?

Participants split into teams, and began their 10-week journey in the field, researching and developing concepts. They visited Syrian and Jordanian populations, as well as NGOs and other projects working on related issues. Along the way, teams learned techniques from human-centered design and design research. Each team went through many prototype iterations, and gained feedback from their target communities as well as from the judging panel after their weekly pitches.

The Final Solutions

The final four solutions centered around housing, vocation, access to transportation, and skill exchange.
