CULTURE AND COMMUNICATION
The Culture and Communication sub-team works to develop the cultural literacy of the team and facilitate effective internal and external communication on the BLUElab India Project team. This sub-team has been responsible for creating materials such as the May 2017 Needs Assessment Protocol, December 2017 Village Action Plan, and other informational materials used to support BLIP and the Setco Foundation's technology and awareness initiatives. Over the last two years, we have focused on providing solutions to two problems: excessive smoke from cookstoves and lack of usable toilets, both of which were discovered on the May 2014 trip. Based on our May 2017 needs assessment, our upcoming project will address the need of obtaining drinking water.
