The development goals of striving nations or societies are constantly challenged by resource limitations in key growth sectors. As "global leaders in education", we at MIT have both the potential and the responsibility to help the underprivileged individuals and communities around the world grow in at least one key area - education.

At HoV, we design and manage projects and initiatives, in an MIT mens et manus style, to bring changes in ordinary people's lives through empowerment in education. We invite the MIT community and beyond to participate in, learn from, critique and recreate our efforts.
