Welcome to the Hunt Institute for Engineering & Humanity

Our Mission

The Hunt Institute is dedicated to developing and scaling sustainable and affordable technologies and solutions to the challenges facing under-resourced communities. A hub and convening platform for business, academia, NGOs and governmental organizations, we foster market-based mechanisms to create sustainable livelihood opportunities that respect the dignity of individuals and communities in Texas and around the world.

Our Impact

Over the past decade we tested, piloted, and implemented novel approaches to holistically tackle interconnected problems to foster climate-smart inclusive economic development. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that access to opportunities and economic prosperity is shared and we leave a healthy planet for future generations. Our approach has been operational for only a few years but its impact has already been noteworthy and we are proud to share some of the highlights in this report. Download our Impact Report.
