The Guatemala team is currently researching possible layouts for the classrooms, as well as mapping the entire school on AutoCAD. An MOU will be drafted soon, and further research will be conducted to further the progress of the school.
In 2013, the planned borehole was drilled, but was not water bearing. After careful re-assessment and surveying, the team and community members decided to shift the focus of the project to rainwater catchment at the Miranga secondary school, primary school, and Lunga primary school.
Currently at Engineers without Borders Camden project, we have started working on a rain-barrel system for a new vegetable garden in the community. We are trying to update the design for the system to suit the needs of this lot and solve a few problems we encountered.
The Tanzania team is preparing to remotely implement the drilling of a borehole well in Tloma Awak, Tanzania.
