Why You Should Support Our Organization
The community of Yarvicoya, Bolivia is an indigenous community in the Andes Mountains located in the county of Bolivar, which is one of the 30 poorest counties in Bolivia. This puts Yarvicoya in one of the poorest counties in the poorest country of South America. Yarvicoya currently has no potable water distribution system.
The EWB-USA University of Memphis chapter has been selected to address this issue by developing a potable water distribution system. In July 2012, six students and two professional mentors will travel to Yarvicoya to gather information pertinent to designing a water distribution system, as well as build relationships with the local population.
