Kenya

The Kenya project is a partnership between EWB-UConn and the community of Gambella. The issue they are facing is water supply: they do not have enough water to keep up with their domestic and agricultural needs. Our job is to assess the situation and come up with a way to solve this problem, such as drilling a new well and installing a solar pump that connects to their concrete storage tank.

Currently, we are working with our team consisting of UConn students, professional engineers, and contacts from GHNI¬†throughout Kenya and Africa. We are working on assessing the data we have concerning the hydrogeologic conditions of Gambella, and hope to begin implementing a solution in our coming winter and summer trips. We’re always happy to grow our team and welcome new members!
