Mali Health and Education Center
The Mali Project is working with Grace Leadership Foundation to build a center in the village of Samaya in Mali. The center will be used as a clinic and educational facility to train members of the village, specifically women, about medical practices. The team is working on a needs assessment to find out what implications would be most beneficial within the center.
The Frontline Waste project is working toward implementing environmentally friendly waste incinerators in low-income countries. The incinerators are meant to reduce pollution in a sustainable way. The team is working to find out specific needs of multiple countries to determine the best way to execute the Frontline Waste business plan.Past Projects

Health System Bottlenecks in Bangladesh (2017)
Bottleneck analysis is an innovative approach to identify the gaps in service delivery. In this study, for the first time ever, a similar approach is being used to assess the health systems of an entire country- Bangladesh. It is a multifaceted study that consists of: a cross-sectional analysis of the current performance of the health systems of Bangladesh, the calculation of the cost of scaling up of essential health services to achieve universal health coverage by 2030, the impact of the scale up on mortality and morbidity, and ultimately the cost-effectiveness of such an effort.
