Ride-sharing comes to refugee camps

This year’s $1 million Hult Prize went to Roshini Rides, a network of rickshaw shuttles for refugee camps.

The idea, developed by a team of students from Rutgers University, is to tap under-employed rickshaw drivers to serve popular routes in refugee camps, with a special emphasis on women’s safety.

The first test: Pakistan’s Orangi Town, one of the world’s largest slums and home to 2.5 million refugees. (Check out this interactive map by The Refugee Project to see the scope and history of today’s refugee crisis.) The Hult Prize was started in 2009 and is sponsored by Hult International Business School.

President Bill Clinton is a long-time partner.
