As the Local Project in Prenter, WV has become one of our main focuses, we participated in another short trip to complete some of the smaller initial tasks we weren't able to get to during the spring break trip. The purpose of this trip was to continue the light, general work that was started during the Spring Break Prenter trip.
EWB participated in its second annual West Virginia service trip over spring break from Saturday, March 4th to Wednesday, March 8th. This year, the project was based in Prenter, West Virginia in Boone County. Prenter is a Boone Co. community hit hard by the coal company exodus, and they’ve gone about 2 years without potable water.
EWB's 2017 international project will consist of assessing the quality of water in Rukoki, a town in Uganda, Africa. This will be an approximately 5-year long project with a goal to improve the quality of water and life for the citizens of Rukoki. Alexis Zini, Morgan King, Esther Raub, and Dustin Freeman will be attending this first leg of the project this summer.More information coming soon!
