Who We Are
IEEE Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology (SIGHT) is a global network of IEEE volunteers. It is a subcommittee of IEEE Humanitarian Activities Committee (HAC).
Among 380 projects across 39 countries, Beshuddho was one of the projects selected for funding. The project aimed to build an affordable water purifier applicable for use in Dhaka households. The members of the project collaborated with DU’s Microbiology department for necessary testing.
What We Do
We at SIGHT aim to leverage engineering technology to sustainably help local under-served neighbourhoods – often in collaboration with domestic organisations and non-profits. We come together to learn about sustainable development, build relationships within our local communities, and implement SIGHT group projects that utilise technology to tackle key problems within the community.
