*New Project Alert*
EWB has approved a project in El Salvador to assess the failure of a water well pump and design improvements. The community’s electrical cost to pump the water has significantly increased, and they can no longer afford the bill. The pump is being proposed to upgrade from a 3HP pump to a 5HP pump. It is taking 18 hours to fill the water tank when it previously took only 8 hours.
If you would like to get involved with this project please contact Nancy Kralik at firstname.lastname@example.org. An assessment team will be traveling around the Thanksgiving holiday for an assessment trip.
It has been about a week since we successfully had the Kenya Fundraiser “Haba Na Haba”. The EWB-Central Houston Chapter is very thankful to have hosted over 100 guests at the Houston Museum of African American Culture.
