CURRENT CHALLENGES

International Rescue Committee

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) (www.rescue.org) is the world's largest non-profit organization with an exclusive focus on helping people affected by conflict and disaster.  Through their Airbel Impact Lab, they engaged with SeaFreight Labs to use crowd-solving to search for solutions to the most intractable problems for refugees - problems that affect millions of people.  The engagement consists of multiple challenges.  Click HERE for more details.    

This engagement is part of our commitment to the Pledge-1% movement.

  • The first challenge is sourced from refugee camps: Safe and Desirable Female Toilets in Refugee Camps.   This challenge is looking for new ideas in three different categories of problems with current latrines:  improved lighting, locking and alerting when in need of maintenance.  Click HERE to visit the challenge. 

  • The second challenge comes from another part of the IRC's work:  Innovative Packaging for Last Mile Medical Supply Delivery.  This challenge is seeking new ideas for cost-efficient packaging that are trackable, secure and reusable and that can be used in the delivery of medical supplies in Sierra Leone.  Click HERE to visit the challenge.
