At TIGS we believe in building trust with communities, network with humanitarian groups, develop coalitions and networks to create communication channels to share resources, and enable efficient technology transfer to stakeholders. It is evident from global scientific research practices that community and stakeholder engagement is a very relevant process and reinforces positive impact when there is a need to address complex societal challenges. Such dynamic and socially serving scientific research can become a model for scaling technological solutions to address issues faced by developing countries.
