The EWB-UTSA chapter has been on the University of Texas at San Antonio campus since 2011 and just completed their first project in Viña Vieja, Peru. The Chapter consists of students from multiple disciplines (mechanical, civil, computer, finance, and geology), two mentors, and a Faculty Advisor. (Click here to see who all is involved) The Students in this chapter are involved in design, fundraising, and outreach (with guidance from the Faculty Advisor, two mentors, and College of Engineering-UTSA).
The project was mainly concerned about a water system that needed to be implemented within the community. The EWB-UTSA Chapter has visited the community of Viña Vieja multiple times and we have been building a great relationship over the last 6 years. The trip to complete the last leg of the water treatment system was completed in the last few days of December 2017. Now that the first project is completed, new horizons await our organization. Currently, research has been conducted surrounding a potential new community in Monte Plata, Dominican Republic. EWB encourages new ideas, and welcomes anyone willing to dedicate their time into helping others out. To become part of our family and get more information on the progress of the project you can keep up with us on our webpage, Facebook, Twitter (@ewbutsa).
