Sue Xiao, I don't know what school you go to, but a relatively new student group called Design for America (DFA) is helping college students learn how to reach out to their local community to have social impact through design. I applaud groups which work on solutions for the developing world, but the ability to connect directly with people in the local community often improves both the design and the impact of the project. Although it started at Northwestern University, DFA is currently at 17 campuses. See www.designforamerica.com for more info.
