Washington State University’s Engineers Without Borders is partnering with the rural village of Zapote, Panama to bring clean water to its 1,000 Ngäbe residents. Currently, the village’s residents do not have access to a reliable water source four months out of the year.
Our goal is to help the people in the region develop an engineering solution to eliminate their water shortage. Under the guidance of WSU’s faculty, our team has been working with WSU alumna Destry Seiler, who is stationed near this community. Her engineering expertise has been the driving force behind getting this project off the ground.
To succeed in this long-term project, we have set a goal of $50,000. Our team has already raised $10,000, but need your help to meet our goal!
Currently were successful at implementing a solar panel pump system. Now we are working on a Community Outreach Center. Click on any of the following to find out more information:
