Solutions for Lasting Change
After assessing Mphero village and exploring potential solutions, including borehole wells, biosand filtration and rainwater catchment, EWB-UD is taking steps to implement a borehole well to supply potable water to the community. We are working with the Village Implementation Committee to educate the community, plan the project, and eventually sustain our design for years to come. The team is currently working towards traveling this summer to construct the well.
EWB-UD is currently partnered with the community of Ubujan, on the island of Bohol, in the Philippines working on a water project. This community is highly vulnerable due to severe weather that hits the island, and currently has very poor water quality. Our project in the community will help address their water and sanitation needs in a sustainable fashion. Our second assessment trip to assess the community occurred this past winter.
