Current ProjectsWater Treatment for Tejeras, HondurasWater Resource and Treatment for communities in the Darien, Panama

Sponsored by:Current Project:

EWB-SDSU has made two assessment trips to Tejeras where we made great relationships with the community.

Over 50 door-to-door health surveys were conducted throughout the community. Most common issues found include gastrointestinal irritation when members drank the water and there were even instances of skin irritation.

We held multiple meetings with community leaders and members, some of whom were passionate about helping their community improve their water quality.

Field observations and assessment in Tejeras allowed the Honduras Project Team to develop improved designs of the communitys current water system.

Unfortunately, the CSU system was obligated to ban all student organizations from traveling to Honduras after the US Department of State declared it to be a High Risk for travellers.

EWB-SDSU has maintained a good relationship and communication with the community while we have spent the past year finding an alternative solution.We are currently partnering with The Moxie Foundation, founded by Irwin Zahn, to bring community members from Tejeras to San Diego tohelp train them to be able to implement the improvements on their water system together, as a community. Current Project: Clean Water for the Darien, Panama

This past year, EWB-SDSU has partnered with Fundacion Por Los Ninos de Darien to help communities gain access to more, cleaner drinking water year-round.

The travel team assessed 4 different schools in communities without clean drinking water year-round.
