As another great selection for this year's 2014 Unreasonable Institute Launchpad, SOURCE International is a non-governmental organization that couples scientific exploration with positive social change. The team specifically targets those health and environmental issues that arise from extractive industries and their negligences. That includes most prominently things like mining and gold production.
SOURCE offers advice and support to those communities who feel as though their human rights may be exploited as part of their labor. The countries that they have worked in previously include Honduras, Guatemala, Peru and Argentina, where they engage in activities such as conducting studies, analyzing water quality and training community leaders.
