Projects

EWB-RHIT has worked in a variety of locations. Click on any location for more information about our involvement in that community.

  • Gomoa Gyaman, Ghana

    We have completed one assessment trip to Gomoa Gyaman. We plan to construct a series of latrines for the community, which lacks appropriate sanitation facilities.

  • Batey Relief Alliance, Dominican Republic (Closed)

    From 2009 until 2014, EWB-RHIT collaborated with the Batey Relief Alliance in the communities of Batey Cinco Casas and Batey Santa Rosa, Dominican Republic. Over the course of three assessment trips and four implementation trips, our travel teams constructed a hurricane and earthquake resistant roof and a septic system and piping network for the medical clinic in Batey Cinco Casas allowing for an outpatient facility to be implemented. We have also constructed six latrines for the community of Batey Santa Rosa and they also built three latrines on their own, displaying their understanding of the design and techniques used. The final monitoring trip to the community and all of the projects were determined to be a great success, especially with motivating the communities to continue working to improve their own livelihoods.

  • Obodan, Ghana (Closed)

    Since our founding in 2004 until 2008, we worked with the community of Obodan, Ghana in order to improve their infrastructure, and in doing so, improve their quality of life. Our chapter constructed a chicken brooder house and community center for the community.
