The Comoros Islands
I was sent as a humanitarian worker with a group of teammates to establish an aid program in Comoros. I arrived in a country where three languages were spoken, none of them were English. I attended language school from 8am to 12:30pm and took culture walks from 1pm to 5pm, every day.

ScreenersWe identified individuals who spoke English and could serve as users and help us recruit other users.
Design StudioI led some of the weekly meetings our team had to synthesize and identify the need of that community. We would then create a variety of lesson plans.
I carried on research to investigate the need of the people during the week. On Thursdays, we met as a team and shared our findings and ideated possible concepts of what the work would be. After considering the possible work that was needed, from digging wells to medical clinics, we designed a curriculum for an English as a Second Language school.
