Project Air Mask: A Project on Reducing Air Pollution Exposure for India’s Most Vulnerable
International and Area Studies
Fall 2018

Rudy Venguswamy will be traveling to the Clinton Global Initiative University to work on his initiative to bring pollution stopping respirators to at-risk groups in India. Every year, over 9 million people die in the country alone from air pollution. By building an affordable mask for under 100 rupees (@1.5 USD) for people to wear during commutes and while cooking, Project Air Mask hopes to increase awareness about air pollution and help keep those most affected by its adverse effects safe.
