InAGlobe Education is a partnership building social enterprise. By facilitating partnerships between humanitarians and academics we seek to tackle the effects of scarcity and poverty in developing countries with technological innovation and in turn help educate engineering students about the most important global challenges.
Propose projects and implement innovative solutions
Accessible tailor-made technology for an increasing need to provide sustainable impact.
Partnering with world-leading academics and talented engineering students to direct innovation.
Improving accessibility by connecting to innovation-focused universities with resources for prototyping.
Complement education with humanitarian innovation
Increasing global acumen & social awareness through exposure to new cultures and environments.
Exposure to new engineering constraints, diversifying ones ability to tackle problems and think critically.
Projects with real implementation prospects & publishing opportunities.
These projects are in the design phase!
Point of Care Viral Hepatitis Device
Up to 80% of deaths due to viral hepatitis are not diagnosed before occurring. This project aims to create a POC device to improve results of the screening processes.
Viral Hepatitis is slowly drifting towards becoming the most lethal infectious disease, as tuberculosis-caused deaths are slowly decreasing. Up to 90% of deaths as a result of Hepatitis B go undiagnosed, and up to 80% for Hepatitis C. With rapid diagnostic tests being convenient yet with insufficient sensitivity, many infected persons are not detected in screening processes. Thus this project sets out to develop a device that improves on the current screening devices.
Pill-Organiser for Self-Medication
A pill organiser for orphans in Casa do Gaiato-Maputo to self medicate appropriately. Motivated by the poor disease management due to limited number of healthcare workers.
Casa do Gaiato is an orphanage (amongst other things) 2 hours away from Maputo. In a country where 11.5% of the population is infected with HIV/AIDS, the orphanage is not exempt from this statistic. With the few health workers and significant treatment that is retroviral drugs, children find themselves undereducated and taking a lot of time and resources from the healthcare centre at the orphanage. Thus a proposed project by Fundación Mozambique Sur is the creation of a pillbox that informs the children when they need to take a specific pill. In addition to this, disease management is known to be poor but it is not quantified, so implementing a data acquisition process can shed light on how poor the disease management is, and it can aid to identify the children that are at higher risk of forgetting, and behavioural trends associated with their activities and age.
Outstanding Achievement Student Award 2017
In October 2017, InAGlobe Education was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Student Award in recognition to the work done extramurally in representation of Imperial College London.
During the summer of 2017, the InAGlobe co-founders spent over a month travelling around the country visiting humanitarian initiatives, speaking to relevant stakeholders and developing the InAGlobe concept.

We believe that creating awareness and with it a narrative regarding the key issues and topics related to that which we are trying to build is an imperative to our work!
