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.

Finished Project
In September, the Ecuador project team headed to Bua to oversee implementation of a bank of composting toilets at the Abraham Calazacon school.  The project was completed in October and commissioned with a ceremony involving local government officials.  Above, the toilets are given a test-run by a Bua student.
