The pilot program allows for a smooth transition from concept to reality. As a vital component of design thinking is an idea's feasibility, the creators of the community concierge program have begun to test this with pilot program in Kathmandu. To start this program, a key partnership needed to be made. Additionally, the communication barriers between Nepal and the US had to be addressed. Eventually the stakeholders decided upon a group of 31 community leaders (called bindis or "“Sahayogi Saathis”) who will lead the pilot. These leaders have agreed to participate in exchange for training and resources. Interviews with them can be found below. Ultimately this model will continue to be monitored and tested with the goal of striking a balance between rapid prototyping and patient development.
