Often, the primary reason for the failure of technical solutions proposed by the Government and NGOs is the lack of relevance to the local, socio-cultural context of the region. The d-Hive Community Driven Rural Innovation team realized that there is a compulsory need for technological development in such areas. They work to improve the lives of people by enabling design thinking among rural children and the youth to develop appropriate technologies using locally available resources. The rural children benefit the most from this project as they are not only given the recognition they deserve but also exposure to technical, entrepreneurial and leadership skills at a very young age. d-Hive’s work has been recognized at several forums including the recent invitation to be a part of the prestigious MIT Innovation and Entrepreneurship Bootcamp 2018.
