Preparing for a visit to Zambia

Hello again,

I am leaving this evening from Israel to Zambia for 3 weeks to check up on how the local leadership is doing, and to help them to make the necessary changes in order to ensure success in our goals.

Together with these project leaders, we will be hosting a group of 10 graduate students from the Albert Katz International School for Desert Studies of the Ben Gurion University of the Negev, where I am studying. These students have been involved this past semester in the ongoing Rural Water Development course with Prof. Noam Weisbrod, with which I have been involved as an assistant. They will be coming to Simango for a week in order to conduct water quality sampling and to help build several demonstration sites of the BioSand filter, which we are promoting as part of this project.

I am also hoping to create a short video from this visit in order to summarize the project in an appealing and comprehensible way.

I will keep you all posted when I return.

In the meantime, do visit the project blog:  "Out of the Ground"
