Hey EWB! On Monday’s meeting, we had a presentation on water quality work that was done in Kenya last summer and on what needs to be done this summer. Keep a look out for an email about the training session this Saturday! Next week, Matt will be giving a presentation on Functional Anarchism, and Katie will also be showing her video for the retreat a few weeks ago.

Travel team members need to go to the work session on Friday to complete paperwork, and also talk to Laura to get your yellow fever shot if you haven’t.

Announcements

Sunday Funday – Bozone Brewery Sunday Funday was this weekend. People and fun, and we made $45!

International Institute of Sustainable Development Conference – The conference was great. We’ll do a short summary tonight, and a little bit longer presentation to get those who couldn’t attend informed is coming next week. We’ll continue the discussion in the coming weeks at PIC.

Friday work session – We need to get the travel paperwork finalized! The travel team should be at the Dodge Conference Room at 3:30.

Yellow Fever shots- Laura’s working this, talk to her if you’re traveling and haven’t already booked a time.

Composting Latrines – Chris Allen is working on finalizing designs and paperwork to send in for approval, and he is also trying to get some paperwork done so that we can build composting latrines without getting permission from EWB-USA every time. Education efforts are also being discussed. This is a great way to learn more about the composting latrines, which are a very big part of our sanitation project in Khwisero. Talk to Chris if you’d like more info: moc.liamg|nelladedraebeht#moc.liamg|nelladedraebeht
