Karibu! Welcome!

Since 2004, EWB@ MSU's professional and student volunteers have worked with community members in Khwisero, Kenya to provide water and sanitation infrastructure at the district's 58 primary schools, making it easier for Khwisero's children to avoid waterborne disease and get an education.

In that time, the group has grown from a small club to one of MSU's premier student organizations, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund seven borehole wells, six composting latrines and a biogas latrine that serve thousands of community members.

Thank you for joining us as we continue to work hand-in-hand with local partners to make a difference in one small part of our world. As Western Kenya's limited internet access allows, we will update this blog while in-country with the successes, stories and lessons provided by our work.

Composting Action: Ekatsombero Primary

Almost finished product.

Mwisena Primary School



Mostly finished!

Both schools took the same design and ran with it. Both incorporated their own modifications and interpretations of the designs. I let Ekat run with a slightly different roof design to give us some design options. Both fundis and schools did an awesome job and are super excited about the projects. Next up, finding water.
