The demand for humanitarian engineering solutions is growing. Governments, nonprofits, and corporations look for ways to reach underserved communities and markets. Design Outreach was born with the mission of developing humanitarian solutions for the world’s most pressing issues. We are excited to help support their main product: The LifePump and their main fundraiser to support it: The Give Water Gala! We will be mailing invitations and learning more about the work that they do!

Cancellation Policy: Due to the nature of our events, an accurate headcount is important. Please contact one of the event coordinators if you have RSVP’ed but are unable to attend this event.
About Design Outreach: The majority of the world’s products are designed for the minority who live in developed countries. Instead, Design Outreach’s products arise from collaboration with non-governmental organizations, missionaries, and other sources from developing countries. Each project is conducted with in-country partners who know and understand the community through long-term relationships.
About #CbusGivesBack: Columbus Gives Back coordinates group volunteer events with local non-profits, organizes philanthropic happy hours to raise support and awareness for our non-profit partners, and participates in other philanthropic events while emphasizing our social twist: to have fun with volunteers new and old during and after events in the hopes of creating a culture of community engagement amongst our target audience of young professionals.
