Graduate student Denise Costello, who's about to leave for a WaSH project in northern Afghanistan, sent me this post-implementation report that was submitted by the EWB-Portland Professionals chapter:
I think it's a great example of a report.
You can also find it on the International Action (Haiti Water) WWW site. Here is what the site says:
Inscribed in the middle of the Haitian flag is the powerful national motto, L'union fait la force, literally translated in English as, unity creates strength. Indeed, International Action believes that through partnerships with other organizations, our collective work will have a greater impact in our respective target communities. Without a doubt, intra-agency cooperation with various entities has been a key element to our overall success in Haiti's water and sanitation sector.
As such, we eagerly shared our methods, technology, and expertise to support the efforts of the Portland Professionals - Engineers Without Borders group in their quest to rebuild the water system of the southwestern city of Les Anglais. The local government of this magnificent coastal city
has struggled for years to meet the public health needs of its constituents
mostly because it had been unable to ensure the proper reconstruction of the water system damaged when a hurricane hit the rural area in 2008.
When we were made aware of the Portland Professionals - Engineers Without Borders' efforts to reconstruct the water system in Les Anglais, International Action was more than elated to provide free chlorine tablets to disinfect the water. Our help proved to be beneficial to the project. Our
chlorine tablets are currently being used in a biodynamic tablet feed chlorinator in the newly reconstructed water infrastructure. An estimated 12,000 people will now drink clean water!
Thanks to Carolyn Shapiro of EWB-Portland for helping Denise with saome sampling and incubation questions.
