Offer: Opportunity for WP members in Kathmandu and Delhi

IDEO.org has a new program called Amplify (www.ideo.org/amplify) that we are really excited about! The program consist of ten innovation challenges over five years—each tackling a different issue.

The first challenge focuses on finding safety solutions that would help make urban areas safer for women and girls in low-income communities. Using an online platform called OpenIDEO.com, the program will encourage people from all over the world to submit solutions they would like to see and work together to refine their ideas. At the end of the online challenge in May, IDEO.org will choose a few of the most promising ideas to receive seed funding and support from professional designers to being the ideas to life.

With the launch of this challenge, the IDEO.org team will be traveling to Kathmandu and Delhi in February to meet with local organizations and community-members, with the goal of helping them participate in the challenge. If you are interested in hearing more about what they are up to, please send me an email by Monday, January 27th and I will send you additional information.

I'd Love More Information!

Hi Tiffany,

I am Brooke Bennett, and I am a high school student passionate about women's empowerment, engineering, and travel. I just read your post about the Amplify program and would love more information.

As I have not located your email address yet, I am posting to let you know I am interested. My main question was if there was a age requirement for the project?

Anyways, I will email you soon.

Thanks!
Brooke
