EWB-BPC builds a better world through engineering projects that empower communities to meet their basic human needs and equip leaders to solve the world’s most pressing challenges. Members collaborate with communities to find sustainable solutions for sanitation, water supply, agriculture, energy, and structural problems.
We have three active projects in Mkutani: a water supply, girl’s latrines and multipurpose classroom project. Our first priority is to construct a pipeline that will take potable water from a well we implemented in 2018, 2.5 miles to the center of the community. This will greatly reduce the time that community members spend getting water now. Our next priority is to build a block of girl’s latrines at the primary school in Mkutani. This project’s design includes 12 stalls and a private washroom to provide the children a safe, clean environment to practice feminine hygiene. The multipurpose classroom project will bring further improvements to the primary school with seven new, well-lit classrooms that can be used for both youth and adult education.
