Embry-Riddle Project Haiti 2012
Project Haiti students and professors are planning the third installation trip to Haiti during Summer 2012. This year we will deliver a solar water purifier to Inuqua University in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. Inuqua University is a private school in Haiti that lost prestigious downtown buildings during the 2010 earthquake. Now, their classes are held under tents. These Haitian students are dedicated and have continued their studies despite tremendous hardships. Their campus needs a water purifier and our Embry-Riddle students can provide one.
Our goal is to provide safe, clean drinking water for 3000 Haitian university students all entirely powered from the sun. Our Embry-Riddle students will teach Haitian students how to maintain and upkeep the system. Our goal is to provide a sustainable, long-term clean water solution for Inuqua University in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti.
Embry-Riddle has the enthusiastic engineers who want to help Haitian university students. Please join us to help this vision become a reality.
Our total hardware budget is approximately $18,000 to deliver a solar pump, purifier, and large storage tanks to Haiti. The trip and travel is another $15,000 to get 10 people safely there and back for a 7 day installation trip. Would you consider giving $2500, $5000, or some other amount to help make this vision a reality? All donations are tax deductible and 100% of your contribution goes towards purchasing purifier hardware or delivering it with the students.
