In this episode of The Real Deal
, our 12 contestants are tackling a real social challenge in our society - leprosy. Now you might be wondering: haven't we already solved that problem? Well, actually, 58% of leprosy cases worldwide are in India. Leprosy is completely curable, but the stigma associated with it has not been cured in centuries. For this week's challenge, contestants were taken to Nashik, where they were given one hour at the Leprosy Mission Community Center to explore the facility, identify an existing problem, and create a solution that is sustainable, viable and create an impact for the Center. There they presented their ideas to the community members who then cheered for who they thought had the best solution.
