Hi, I hope you are finding our website excellent. Maintaining the website is my most explicit responsibility but I also enjoy working with the Bolivia Water Sanitation team and promoting EWB in general. EWB is an amazing organization. Our members help people in developing regions break through engineering obstacles while gaining practical experience themselves. Teamwork is my favorite part of being in Engineers Without Borders. Feel free to contact me with concerns about the website or otherwise!
