Project H Design , the product design nonprofit founded by Inhabitat’s own Emily Pilloton, is currently in the running to win $10,000 for their newly launched project: designing educational math toys for the developing world and US retail markets. They’ve assembled a team of designers, social entrepreneurs, and manufactures to develop a math toy that will be locally-manufacturable in the developing world (based on the Kutamba School for AIDS orphans  case study and Architecture for Humanity project  in Uganda) in addition to a sister US retail product based on the same concept/system. Ideablob  hosts a monthly contest that awards $10,000 to one great idea, aka the one that receives the most votes. Please help Project H by voting for them on Ideablob!
Project H Design  is a global design nonprofit that believes design can change the world. The case study for their latest project is the Kutamba School for AIDS orphans  in Uganda, which Project H worked with this year. The team will develop a locally-produced version of the math toy for Kutamba with broader distribution in the developing world, in addition to a sister US retail version based on the same system.
