Teaching Human-Centered Design in Ghana

Hilary Johnson ’15 and Gurkaran Singh ’15 found a new application for critical thinking and problem-solving skills: promoting peace. Johnson and Singh taught human-centered design to high school girls in Accra, Ghana.

“Girls around the world experience violence because of not being able to educate themselves and because of early marriage. Educating and empowering these young women leads to peaceful and sustainable communities,” says Johnson.
