Building a better world, one community at a time

June 2009 Project Picture of the Month

Students from the Orkeeswa Secondary School  help survey the school grounds with guidance from Portlander Ken Elbert. 

The EWB Portland Tanzania project team sent two representatives, Matt Barbian and Ada Banasik, to the Orkeeswa School in April to perform a site assessment.  The assessment included water quality testing, land surveying, coordination with local contractors, visits to completed projects, and getting to know the operations and needs of the school.   Ken was traveling in Africa at the time and stopped by to help coordinate the land surveying efforts.  The team found no shortage of willing help among the amazing students!  Read about the project background.
