We are pleased to announce that this year’s group of Hart Fellows began their field placements in July. After an intensive training retreat and a few weeks of rest and preparation, Paige Newhouse, David Rosen, and Henry Warder have embarked upon their 10 months of service abroad.
Paige is working with Caritas Friedland, a national NGO in Friedland, Lower Saxony, Germany. Caritas Friedland is the oldest refugee camp in Germany and currently houses upwards of 700 refugees. Paige hopes to research the reincorporation of the refugees served by Caritas Friedland into the larger German community.
David is working with Arava Institute, a leading environmental studies and research institution in Israel. The Arava Institute works to advance cross-border environmental cooperation in the face of political conflict. David is planning to research the role of water infrastructure within the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Henry Warder is working with Nia Technologies and the Tanzania Training Centre for Orthopaedic Technologists (TATCOT) in Moshi, Tanzania. Nia and TATCOT are working together to develop best practices for 3-D printed prosthetics. Henry’s goal is to research the adaptability of 3-D printed prosthetics to developing areas of the world.
