THE STORY:

Hello,

I am Walter Keyes, freshman computer engineering student at binghamton university.

All around the world, millions of people die every year from diseases caused by contaminated water. Villages in developing regions often have no way to get clean water, so they contract these diseases. Without access to medical help or any clean water, they soon die. EWB’s mission is to build a better world through engineering projects that empower communities to meet their basic human needs and equip leaders to solve the world’s most pressing challenges. Our chapter is  working with Amazon Promise to build a water harvesting system in Hipolito, Peru. Rainwater harvesting systems have proved to be the best option for communities in need of drinking clean water in river villages. It is a simple, sustainable, and easy to operate and maintain system; people don’t need to have special technical skills to keep the system up and running for the future.

Water is something most people in the First World take for granted. We forget that some people don't have access to a clean water source. By bring attention to this project, I hope to also bring attention to the people who live with less than what they need. I hope to encourage more people to help, so eventually, everyone has enough to meet their baasic needs.

Feel free to contact me with any questions: wkeyes1@binghamton.edu
