Design through Maasai Cultural Immersion (Tanzania)

Working with the Maasai of Longido District, Tanzania this social design project presents unique problems where students’ creative design and problem-solving skills can be applied to benefit a community. Industrial Design students partnered with Sprott School of Business and Tembo Canada in an interdisciplinary, co-development, and human-centered approach with social capital to develop innovative products that improve human well-being and livelihood, creating self-sufficiency and economic development within Maasai communities.
