Jasmine Burton has an undeniable passion for serving others.  With a dream of becoming a humanitarian for developing nations, she loves to inspire and be inspired by the world around her.  As a recent Georgia Tech graduate, she has been blessed with a plethora of opportunities from which she continues to grow.  Participating on the planning committees of past Georgia Tech Women’s Leadership Conferences, the CDC’s Summer Public Health Scholars Program at Columbia University, and her Industrial Design studio classes that emphasize ethnographic research, she has had the opportunity to learn about and experience the public health needs and disparities in low-income communities in the world around her.

Her specific design passion is to improve women’s health by means of redesigning toilets in and for these communities.  According to UNICEF, 2.6 billion people lack hygienic sanitation facilities and 768 million people drink unsafe water and, of these people, women and girls are disproportionately burdened by poor sanitation and water inequities.  These statistics are what motivates her to pursue work in the field of sanitation, and what makes Jasmine passionate about the success of her social startup Wish for WASH, LLC (Wash stands for water, sanitation and hygiene).  She would like to pursue a Masters in Public Health with a focus on global maternal and child health, and is a regional finalist for the Rotary Global Grant scholarship.  Ultimately, she seeks to use her creativity to make the world smile.

Wish for WASH, LLC is a social impact organization intended to bring innovation to sanitation through culturally specific design, research and education. We seek to reduce oral-fecal contamination and the spread of WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) related diseases.
