Engineers Without Borders in Uganda Complete 2nd Part of Clean Water Access Project


In 2010, Tufts Engineers Without Borders went to Uganda and worked with the Foundation for Development of Needy Communities to bring clean water to the Shilongo Village. They analyzed the soil profile, measured flow rates of the streams, took water samples and tested them, conducted health surveys, and assessed the available local materials in the area. After meeting with community leaders, they decided to build a contraption to store clean water, a necessity for the village. A year later, EWB went back to the Shilongo Village and built a water tank for the community. Here’s a video of what they accomplished:
