January 2019 - Present
EWB-UMD has officially adopted its first project as a chapter: Nyansakia, Kenya is part of the "Great Lakes Region" of Kenya. The community here does not have access to clean water, and at certain times of the year, there is not enough water to go around. Our goal is to bring clean water to the community year-round. We plan to travel to Kenya for an assessment trip in December 2019.
Two of our chapter members traveled with the University of Minnesota Twin Cities chapter to Guatemala in August of 2018 as a way to learn about the implementation trip process and gain field experiences with Engineers Without Borders.
