Project Updates


Kenya - East Kanyamamba

  Thank you to all of those who supported the KEK school supply drive! We received many great items to send to a primary school in the KEK community. The project team will be shipping the school supplies to their community contact for transit to Kenya in mid-July. The project team is still preparing follow up documentation for their recent trip to Kenya in February and pursuing international grant programs to raise funding for additional spring source development.
The KEK Clean Water Program is located near Rongo, Kenya in the East Kanyamamba community (a community of 1600 people). For more information, please contact Laura Byrd at

Panama - Tranquilla Norte

The team is waiting to hear back about scheduling a call with the newly elected La Junta members.  With new La Junta members a new community agreement will have to be signed and the team is editing a project charter describing the previously intended pipeline replacement project and creating an agreement for expectations around that work.  The team would like to share the updated version with La Junta as well to discuss what their next plans during the call.

Denizen/Wyck Housing Project - Santa Rosa

The Sacramento EWB chapter has partnered with the Denizen/Wyck Housing Group to support the structural design of tiny homes for those displaced by last year's fires in Santa Rosa. The team has completed preliminary design and plans to move forward with an independent check. If you have a structural background and are interested in being involved with the project, please email Patrick Donovan at
