"I believe in maximizing the use of sustainable and resource-efficient business solutions to address major societal concerns. One of the most pressing and ongoing social needs is to provide responsive, economic and dignified temporary shelter to those who are displaced from their homes. Cardborigami is an elegant, human-centered design product that can help expedite the transition from displacement to rebuilding lives."
