Here in Tanzania there are several projects on which the students of the minor Beyond Borders can work.
This year two assignments were given:
- What works to prevent genital mutilation of Maasai girls?
- Is an orphanage the best solution for the care of children?
These are big problems, on which many people have worked. In the minor the theory of Design Thinking is applied and by looking at these issues carefully, the students might come up with an innovative solution.
Last year four students were working on the theme of genital mutilation of Maasai girls. De assignment of this year is a follow up on their project.
