THE STORY:

EOS International, founded by my good friend (Greg) from Iowa State, works to provide underserved communities with access to low-cost appropriate technologies that generate income and improve health, while improving the environment.  They reach rural families in poverty "in the last mile," funding and installing the low-tech and low-cost technologies they desire with their help to improve their lives. Their core technologies are drip irrigation systems, fuel-efficient barrel ovens, biodigesters, community water chlorination systems, and solar electricity. To date, they have installed over 900 technologies, and have impacted the lives of over 90,000 Nicaraguans.

EOS does not give away its products for free; instead, they view rural Nicaraguans as empowered customers rather than recipients of charity. Through engineering innovation and economies of scale, EOS is able to offer these technologies at prices affordable to Nicaragua’s rural poor.

EOS is using their growing network to train and educate other development organizations and Nicaraguans how to construct and maintain these technologies in order to reach more people in need.

Since July 2011, the EOS team has installed water chlorination systems impacting over 80,000 people, and the goal is to reach 100,000 people by July 2014. It has been gratifying to be part of helping so many people with my donations/volunteering/etc.

Greg's willingness and desire to better the lives of others using his expertise has been an inspiration.  Coupled with his passion for running, this opportunity for me to show my continue support could not have come at a better time.  

Please support me, my run, and EOS.  Any amount is appreciated: here is a list of what your donations can bring to those in need.

$65:   Family drip irrigation system
