Ole Miss For Togo Campaign Launches

In 2012 the Ole Miss chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB) made a commitment to work with rural villages in Togo, Africa, to improve community infrastructure and health care. Togo is a distressed country in West Africa with a population of approximately 6.7 million people. Around one half of the population lives below the international poverty line.

With four trips conducted since then, the EWB-Ole Miss team has constructed a school building that provides a safe and comfortable place for dozens of children to benefit from educational opportunities.

The next step in the team’s commitment to rural Togo is to provide clean water to a children’s hospital that is being built by a non-profit organization.

The hospital is almost complete but has no source of water. The goal of EWB-Ole Miss is to drill a well, build two water towers, and install a distribution pipe and a public tap stand. For these complicated tasks to be carefully planned, the team must travel to Togo in January 2016, anticipating a deep water well installation in the summer of 2016.

Having traveled to Togo as part of the EWB-Ole Miss team, we know the needs are dire. Rural villages have few school buildings, no piped or clean water to drink, and no health care. Our team has been performing meaningful work that gives much-needed hope for the future! Make a donation today!

In addition to your financial support, you can help by becoming an ambassador for our campaign. Share our crowdfunding project with your friends and family via email or social media! #OleMiss4Togo
