Great job and congratulations to everyone on the Peru team for implementing their rainwater catchment system project in Peru! The team is excited to have provided the Community of Payorote in the Peruvian Amazon with a rainwater catchment system. The community now has clean water to drink, wash, cook and clean and their health will improve with the reduction of waterborne illness. Thank you to everyone who donated their time, talents, money, energy, and anything else they chose to give in support of the success of this project. Each of our team members played an important role and we hope you all grew from this experience. We set out with a goal to implement this project within a year, and we met that goal! Yea!!! We especially thank our partners at Rotary and Amazon Promise. We would also like to thank our EWB chapter board for providing monetary support and our National organization for providing counsel and guidance. To our 20+ team members on the Peru team, you have made such an impact on our friends in Payorote. I’m proud of you. It has been so fun to work with you all! Thank you.
Below are some pictures of the completed project, the team and some community members, and a happy sloth.

Come join us for a Happy Hour fundraiser to support the Central Houston Engineers Without Borders (EWB) Chapter’s India Project at Midtown’s 3rd Floor bar, 2303 Smith St. Ste 300 Houston, TX 77006.
PROJECT INFORMATION: Chipiya is a small community in Madhya Pradesh, India. Currently, the community uses fuel wood for heating and cooking purposes. However, over the past few years the community has experienced a higher demand for energy and the need to reduce the workload on its population in searching for fuel wood which is scarce due to deforestation. The community has reached out to Central Houston EWB Chapter, a non-profit group that provides engineering expertise to the world, for help in closing the gap between their needs and supply. The EWB Chipiya Project Team was able to propose a sustainable solution for the energy demand problem, a Biogas Plant, to utilize the community’s cow manure.
The funding from the happy hour will go towards our first assessment trip this December and material cost for the project. Please come out to support us and spread the word!
