About Us

Resurgence is a social business formed by a dynamic group of four passionate and hardworking students (namely Ivana Asfara, Rafayet Khan, and Naziba Wafa, led by their team captain Mashiyat Rahman) from BRAC University striving to turn their ideas into reality. The individuals toiled day and night in order to come up with a foolproof plan to restore the rights and dignities of 10 million refugees by 2022.

Resurgence, the winner of Hult Prize 2017 @BRACU, developed a merchantable series of low-cost hygiene products made from an aggressive plant species. Its products and services aim to reach the lives of millions of refugees through several different phases – employment, rights to sanitation, public health education, improvement of environmental health, and the breakdown of social stigmas. The team then proceeded to compete in the Regional Finals of Hult Prize 2017 held in Shanghai, and managed to secure a position in the top 6 of the round.
