Building a better world, one community at a time

January 2009 Project Picture of the Month

Students gather for a picture at the grounds of the Orkeeswa Secondary School. EWB Portland partner, IEFT, has been working in Lashaine Village for around 2 years to establish the Orkeeswa secondary school. They have made progress with the construction of two classroom buildings and staff quarters. Their first classes started in Spring 2008. A project team from EWB Portland has formed to help IEFT address the existing and future infrastrure needs of the school - sanitation, water and energy - in a way that is harmonious with rural Tanzanian resources and society. Find out more about about the Tanzania project and how to get involved.
