A message from Naluja Zambia
LET'S PUT THE FUN IN FUNDRAISING!
Engineers Without Borders supports community-driven development programs worldwide through empowering partnerships that design and implement sustainable solutions to a community's basic human needs.
Our Boston University Chapter is collaborating with the community of Naluja, Zambia along with Boston University's Center for Global Health & Development (CGHD), UNICEF, and the Clinton Health Access Initiative. For the past three years we have been working with the people of Naluja on various projects. We are working on increasing cell phone signal as part of CGHD’s postnatal healthcare initiative and a water purification system. Currently there are 6 Yagi Antennas successfully installed in the Naluja village to amplify the cell phone signal. Our travel team installed one Yagi, while the Nalujan community members have installed the others. For water purification, we plan to repair the village’s solar paneled pump and continue to install water filters to help provide the Naluja community with clean water. On our last trip the villagers took our first design and built 12 water filters. All of our projects are truly driven by the community’s wants and needs.
Our chapter’s motto is ‘gear up, make change’. Our project teams have been ‘gearing up’ and working hard here in Boston researching, developing, and building prototypes but we need your help to help us get to Zambia and really ‘make change’.
