Wednesday, 18 October 2017

IAA's Ali Khalifa and Hasan Abdul Hadi developed an electricity-producing bike that refugees can use for a consistent and reliable source of power. Ali and Hasan were among 4 selected Global Trailblazers to attend a week at Harvard on leadership and entrepreneurship as well as pitch their project to the annual Igniting Innovation Summit.

'Village to Raise a Child' was established by the Harvard Social Innovation Collaborative and aims at identifying and nurturing young social entrepreneurs from around the world. These students, called “Global Trailblazers,”are selected via a global competition that searches for the most inspiring high schoolers with the most innovative ideas from countries around the globe.
