    This one is for supporters who think that talking about global health and hardware hacking in the same breath is cool.

    Field testing with Shift Labs

    You cover your airfare, but we’ll cover your housing & logistics for 3-5 days of field testing. You fly into the closest major city, and we’ll come get you (from the airport, or a hotel nearby) and bring you to the field. Transport & accommodation conditions may be rough, you’re in charge of keeping yourself healthy w/ vaccinations and all that stuff, and we'll ask you to sign a waiver. But you’ll get a first-hand view of what field testing a prototype looks like. Potential sites: Uganda
