Making volunteering innovative and accessible in Lebanon, offering affordable cold storage services to farmers and agribusinesses in Kenya and strengthening accessibility for persons with disabilities with the eye tech that leads blind people to safe paths in Syria - Each of these solutions from the Young Innovators 2022 answers the specific local needs to impact lives and improve the quality of life.
