After our restructure in Fall 2021, we onboarded six teams of new and returning members, who were told that they were all brought together for a reason. That reason, however, was for the teams to figure out; they drew connections between their interests and their aspirations to come up with six of the following projects. Since then, a few of our initiatives have modified their topic area: water sanitation became childhood education, ergonomics became anti-human trafficking, and financial literacy became vocational skills. Two of our existing initiatives from before our restructure (Anemia and Women's Health) also joined forces with these new projects in Spring 2022 to form RISHI Projects, a branch of our organization primarily focusing on service in and development of India.
