After the initial scoping trip, our team has been busy preparing for a potential November start date for this project.
The focus of the November kick-off will be the construction of approximately 20 new latrines for those located in the high-risk flood areas. The rainy season flooding poses the most immediate and serious health risk to the community and nearby water supply.
In addition to the fundraising efforts for the November start, our team has created coloring books that will help educate the children of El Zapote about the importance of health, hand-washing, and other sanitation habits. EWB - High Plains Professional Chapter is dedicated to not only completing successful projects in the communities we serve, but ensuring that we leave with a sustainable plan in place through education and training.
A special thank you to the EWB Rice University student chapter and EWB Colorado School of Mines student chapter for working with us on this project! We continue to see the benefit of continued collaboration with young professionals.
We appreciate all the support we continue to receive on this project and look forward to providing everyone with updates as we move forward!
