Dominican Republic 

background

The Dominican Republic project team is a community-based development project in the Dominican Republic. Previously, the team formed a partnership with a local community named El Corozo, along with Peace Corps Volunteers in the DR, to implement a rural aqueduct system that will improve El Corozo’s access to water. 

The team returned to the village for several years to continue building a sustainable relationship with the community while also making improvements to the aqueduct.

Our mission is to inspire students to be proactive and contextually-aware Engineers who empower communities to attain their basic human needs in a sustainable manner.
