We are Wish for WASH
Our purpose is to bring more diverse minds, talent, and innovation to the problems of global health and WASH in our world through the lens of research, design and education.
Wish for WASH Thinks Inc is a ‘think and do tank’ and is the 501c3, nonprofit arm of the Wish for WASH Collective.
What We Do
We seek to lead and create relevant, actionable, and accessible research at the intersection of innovation and inclusion in the Sanitation Economy while also prioritizing diverse representation in authorship and industry.
Design thinking and human-centered design are cross-cutting methodologies and approaches across all of our workstreams and are evident in all of our outputs. We seek to also capture the impact of our work that fits more in to the traditional product development and engineering space.
Through our workshops and curricula we seek to empower the next generation of STEAM learners, design thinkers, and human-centered problem-solvers to use empathic, interdisciplinary and iterative tools to build sustainable and inclusive innovation in the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector
As a ‘think and do’ tank, we work to support the next generation of makers to utilize participatory design thinking approaches and evidence-based science to create, test and grow their ventures, vocations and voices in this sector.
As a ‘think and do’ tank, we are proud to support, connect and equip a multigenerational and interdisciplinary pipeline of researchers, educators, facilitators coaches, makers and leaders with Durable Skills to effectively, efficiently and equitably drive progress towards the Sustainable Development Goal targets by 2030 (and beyond!)
