A message from Cal Poly Pomona
Hi everyone, the Cal Poly Pomona Student chapter was recently approved by EWB-USA to partner with a community in Los Achiotes, Honduras. The community is looking to address the need for more reliable potable water and our chapter is excited to begin working with them.
The EWB-USA end of the year campaign is a great way to help our chapter help others. For every dollar contributed a match will provide $0.50 to our chapter and $0.50 to EWB-USA. This is all made possible by EWB-USA's amazing sponsors (CH2M Hill, CDM Smith, AECOM, EWB-USA Board of Directors, Chase Giving, Pentair, and Haskell).
The campaign ends January 15, 2013 and there are lots of ways to get involved, whether donating money or spreading the word. Every little bit is appreciated, so thanks for participating!
All donations provided will go towards allowing students to make our first assessment trip
- Asses the economic, social, environmental and technical viability of the program
- Assess project sustainability potential for the program to last long term
- Make a "go/no go" decision about continuing with the program and the community
- Enable future design and analysis to the proposed infrastructure at the site
- Serve as baseline data for monitoring the program in the future.
After an assessment trip our chapter can:
- Make a rational decision about the feasibility of the project
- Decide what the first project will be (confirm immediate needs of the community)
- Create a written document to sign with community and NGO to develop a general agreement that we are going to work together.
