Why is H20 For Hipolito Important to Me?
As someone born in a first world country, I have always had access to basic necessities such as water. For the longest time, I did not think much about how I get my access to water. Learning about Hipolito, I realized that not everyone has such access. Regrettably, the people of Hipolito have to suffer through contaminated water on a daily basis. When its so easy for us to obtain clean water, from options such as buying a water bottle from the convenience store or simply drinking tap water from the sink, the people of Hipolito have to find ways to sanitize their water and sometimes to no avail. Drinking such contaminated water causes parasites to enter the system or diseases that they can contract. I believe everyone has the simple right to access clean water.
What I hope to accomplish through Engineers Without Borders in this project?
Engineers Without Borders is one of the few resources available for students like me who want to make a difference. With this mission, EWB gives me access to utilize my knowledge for less fortunate people. Without EWB there would be no real way to get such access to projects like this.
