I’ve been working on an Engineers without Borders program for a number of years to provide clean water to the villages of Ambalona and Anosimparihy, Madagascar. Overall, our efforts are decreasing waterborne diseases and increasing the overall quality of life for the communities, but we are only about 50% complete with our goal to provide sustainable, clean water to the thousands of people residing there.

We have been busy. Two teams just returned from Madagascar after installing the first two wells in Anosimparihy. We are partnering with Hope for Madagascar and Centennial, CO and Manakara, Madagascar Rotary clubs to provide a sustainable presence in the community. When we are not planning our next well installation, we are fundraising. Relative to the latter, we are having a Fundraising Social to advance our cause. This event is to create awareness, raise funds, and have a good time. Please join us if you can.
