Thinking Huts is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is building a future that increases global access to education through innovative, humanitarian-driven technology solutions. Their goal is to address barriers to education, such as travel distance and overcrowding. Leveraging 3D printing, Thinking Huts is on a mission to close the global education opportunity gap by building schools more quickly in partnership with communities where education infrastructure is needed most. Thinking Huts was founded in 2015 by Maggie Grout, a 22-year old social entrepreneur whose origin story as an adoptee from China shaped her desire to empower people who share similar origin stories, born into underprivileged communities, through increasing access to education and opportunity.
Thinking Huts is currently seeking corporate and individual contributions, as well as volunteers with an interest in education or technology to help achieve its ambitious goals.
