ITU Students chosen for MIT’s Rethink Relief Summit


ITU Students chosen for MIT’s Rethink Relief Summit
November 10, 2014

Information Technology University is proud to announce that two of its students; Sara Muneeb and Aizaz Anwar, have been selected for Rethink Relief; an intense design workshop which will focus on creating technological solutions for humanitarian relief and sustainable development.

The Rethink Relief 2014 summit is due to take place in the post-conflict area of Pader, Uganda. Teams will work in co-creation with local communities to design technologies that ease the transition from relief camps to resettlement in their villages. Residents from the Adjumani refugee camps will also participate in the summit to help identify and address current challenges from their lives in the camps.

Rethink Relief is organized by D-Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Information Technology University is one of the sponsors of the event.
