October Updates 🎃
Updated: Nov 16, 2018
Happy October! This is what the UF Engineers Without Borders Peru Team has been up to:
This month our team finalized our fundraising pages. Since then, we have raised over $1000 for our irrigation reservoir. Thank you to everyone who has donated and supported our mission! If you would like to donate to our project, you can visit our fundraising page and donate to our general team or to a specific member. All of our donations go directly to our project in Maras, Peru.
We have been meeting with the UF Engineers Without Borders Nepal Team in hopes of growing as partners in our engineering and humanitarian endeavors. If you would like to learn more about the Nepal team, check out their website!
Our team is currently working on developing a sponsorship packet. Once it’s polished and perfect, it will be posted to our website. We are also in the editing phase of creating an organizational video about our team. Stay tuned for access to these creations! For now, take a look at our new member headshots on our "Meet the Team" page.
For those involved or familiar with our work in Peru, here are the nitty-gritty details on what progress we’ve made this month:
Our communications team’s new members were introduced to our community contact, Rocio, via Facetime. We discussed our possible contacts within the university and in the community. We are also reaching out to Juan Justo, the principal of Virgen del Carmen elementary school, in order to develop a relationship with one the community’s most prominent and trusted members.
Our design team reviewed the budget of project materials, labor and equipment to ensure efficiency. The team created a list of questions for the communications team to ask Rocio about. These questions are concerned mostly with measurements and materials available. They also completed a pilot EWB-USA survey where they assessed our general team’s overall performance.
