Water Project in El Progreso, Ecuador

The EWB PMP chapter continues to work on a water distribution project in El Progreso, Ecuador. The project team traveled to El Progreso in the fall of 2018 for the first phase of implementation that included building a catchment for one of the water sources and installing concrete pads for the water storage tanks. A second implementation trip was completed in January 2020. It included completing pipe construction for the water tanks, starting to dig a trench for the conduction line, and surveying for distribution lines to individual homes in the village. A third trip is scheduled for summer 2020 to continue implementation.

Below are some photos of the team on their trip to El Progreso in January of 2020.

Community School Debre Birhan, Ethiopia

Engineers Without Borders teams with The Community Project: Ethiopia to increase public health through education and sanitation in Kabele 06 in Debre Birhan. This project will develop a community school, a community center and community gardens within the Habitat for Humanity community in Debre Birhan.

The project team traveled to Debre Birhan, Ethiopia in the fall of 2018 to oversee the completion of the first school building in a planned community complex of classroom buildings. The first building is now complete and children (K – 2) are attending school. Since the PMP chapter’s charge has successfully been completed, the project has been closed out.
