Hi from Canada! After successfully passing the Fundamentals of Engineering exam (a step towards the Professional Engineering license), a great time so far in Canada- with my family at the lake where I’ve gone most years of my life- I’ll be heading to Minnesota.
If you are near Minneapolis, stop by Corner Coffee (514 N 3rd St, Minneapolis) anytime between 4-7:30pm this Sunday, Aug 17th to hear about Bolivia and catch up. Old friends and new, all are welcome.
Then back to Bolivia on Wednesday, and immediately to the Engineers In Action yearly Staff Retreat. We will be evaluating our successes and failures this last year, planning for the next year and some growing partnerships, discussing and incorporating best practices and doing impact evaluation of our projects. That way, we will be able to show more concretely the anecdotal evidence we currently have of water systems improving health, economic opportunities, and community empowerment. Exciting things are coming!
