Want to challenge the status quo?
Seeking to think wrong in the process?
Welcome to Project M

Project M has developed projects related to a conservation area in Costa Rica, microfinancing in Ghana, New Orleans after Katrina, the community of East Baltimore, and connecting households to fresh water in Hale County, Alabama.
