Inspired by: In a world where nearly 34,000 people are forcibly displaced every day, initiatives to improve refugees’ living conditions are more important than ever before. By offering contextually aligned educational programs, engineering education can serve as a powerful tool to empower students with professional skills to improve their own living conditions themselves. Our project raised from real-world needs in refugee camps. Based on that, I search for potential solutions that could help not only refugee camps but also all other fragile settings in the world where water quality and access are critical.
