Hey Everyone!

The Cameroon Implementation team takes off out of Philly tomorrow at 6:30pm!!

Thank you to everyone who has helped us get this far, from the College of Engineering to our private donors to all our design team members. This project would not be possible without you. We really appreciate everything you do to help us help our friends in Bamendjou.

The goals of this January's trip include:
  • installing a pilot lift station to pump water from a well that was drilled in June of 2009 (on our last trip) to a school located at the top of a nearby hill. This is the planned location for the reservoir that will serve the community in the future.
  • assessing the performance of the previously installed water filters
  • working with the Water Committee to develop population density maps to aid in the design of the distribution system
So thanks again everyone who has contributed to the project. Be on the lookout for posts about the team's progress!

And don't forget that EWB-UD has a team in Guatemala right now!! Check out their blog at
