Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB-USA), through its Engineering Service Corps (ESC) program, is providing technical assistance to Safe Water Network’s Ghana operations in order to improve our capacity to design, implement, and manage household connections. This effort builds off of a previous engagement launched in 2016, in which the ESC assessed the potential for household connections in the community of Tongor, Ghana. Our current program focuses on: retrofitting existing stations (such as the station in Tongor) to manage the increased flow required to satisfy household connections and designing new stations to handle future demand for up to 50 household connections. This work is supported by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.

Since its founding in 2002, EWB-USA has been building a better world through engineering projects that empower communities to meet their basic human needs and equip leaders to solve the world’s most pressing challenges.

 

Every person that I met there was focused on bringing up efficiency. Every person that I met there approached their work in a business-like fashion.
