Since the EWB-UCB chapter was founded in 2009, we have envisioned a world in which the communities we serve have the capacity to sustainably meet their basic human needs.
Our chapter is designing a water distribution system to provide reliable access to high-quality well water for the community of El Llanito, Nicaragua.
This project is being done in conjunction with the San Francisco Professional Chapter of EWB.
The Nicaragua Sanitation Program is focused on designing and building latrines for the community of Cuyali in the Madriz department of Nicaragua. The community reached out to EWB as their latrines, which have been used for longer than their intended lifespan, have been breaking down, resulting in families sharing latrines.
