This project is focused in the Pasco region in Peru. The community currently has access to a few streams and water sources, but no access to clean water. The goal of the project is to establish a clean water source that is accessible through the wet and dry season.
Nestled in the western highlands of Guatemala, this project involves replacing a dated, structurally inadequate elementary school in a community of approximately 500 mostly indigenous Guatemalans.
This project is located in the Santa Ana region in El Salvador. The community consists mostly of hard-worked farmers. The current gravity-fed water distribution system that serves the community often succumbs to high pressures and malfunctions often. The EWB-MN chapter designed a solution involving pressure reduction valves (PRVs) to alleviate the pressure. These valves were shipped with engineering plans to the community and installed by plumbers.
This project is located in the Rio Azul region in Guatemala. The community does not have a building dedicated to higher education. Presently, students of all ages are sharing a far too small building. This project involves designing and constructing a new structure to be used as a high school.
This is the newest project with EWB-MN and currently the only local project. The small town of Colfax, WI has few community gathering places. The Colfax Municipal Building, which houses the public library, police station, and community theater, has been the primary place for the community to get together for decades. Due to a leaking basement and a lack of accessibility, parts of the building are unusable. The team is working with the community to restore the building and ensure it continues to be an important part of Colfax.
