ENGINEERING BRIGADES

HONDURAS

 

Volunteers work with local engineers and technicians to design water systems for rural communities. Volunteers assist in assessing water challenges, determining local water sources, and planning the designs for a feasible safe water solution.

 

  

 

 

  

The water systems designed by volunteers will provide
properly treated water for families to live healthier,
more productive lives.

   

 

 

Volunteers have the opportunity to test and determine
flow rates of water sources, plan piping routes and
design system infrastructure.

     

 

 

Volunteers are challenged with creating solutions
while accounting for budget restrictions, local
materials, and appropriate technologies.

   

 

 

Local engineers and experts guide volunteers
throughout the design process to ensure
sustainability. No engineering experience needed.

     
 

The Engineering Program works in conjunction with
the Water Program to ensure water projects are
maintained and economically sustainable.

     
 

Volunteers engage in evening discussions and educational workshops.

JOIN OR START AN ENGINEERING BRIGADE

Engineering Brigades are organized through Engineering Chapters on university campuses or workplaces. A minimum of 15 volunteers is needed for a 7-10 day Engineering Brigade. Volunteers fundraise together to support the materials and logistical costs of their brigade. New Chapter Presidents are assigned a Chapter Advisor to help them start their Chapter.
