Summary: I met with Manu Prakash from Stanford to talk about 2 of his labs’ inventions the Foldscope and the Paperfuge. Combined these cost only 68 cents and they can be used to diagnose Malaria. Both of these are examples not only of simple, brilliant design, but of how engineering is used to make a positive dent in the world.

Read Eva’s story here: http://bit.ly/2lMxcOr

Today, we’re proud to let you know that, since our founding in 2009, we’ve broken ground on our 400th school! Yes, 400.

We celebrate the schools we’ve built together, the communities we’ve partnered with, the teachers we’ve supported and the students who are studying hard every day to get closer to achieving their dreams.

Today, we also remember one of the first members of our PoP Family—the woman who helped inspire a dream of building one school, which inspired a movement for global education. Today, we dedicate our 400th school in loving memory of Eva “Ma” Braun, who passed away in November 2016. For many years now, Ma’s journey of resilience has been a guiding light for our organization, and her inspiration has led us to impact more than 35,000 students in PoP classrooms.

Your PoP Family is forever grateful, Ma.
