Clean water for the Portobelo Colegio: January 2013
Students from the March 2012 Program in Sustainable Design developed plans for a water storage and purification system that will provide safe drinking water for the 900 students at the Portobelo Colegio (High School). We will be working closely with the school not only to install the filtration system and tanks, but we will be teaching hands-on lessons on water quality, waterborne diseases, and basic plumbing. Participants in the January 2013 trip will help us make this project a reality and design other much-needed projects for the community. More details can be found here.
