Several students won a Wisconsin Idea Fellowship award and will teach the Samburu girls to make water vests. The vests equally distribute water around the body so they don't have to carry containers on their head or back, which can bring headaches and back problems. The vests are made from old sails used on sailboats owned by the Memorial Union's Hoofers sailing club. Another student group created a workbook to help the girls realize their self worth and learn about topics like power dynamics.
