Engineers Without Borders

Seven Princeton students in the Princeton chapter of Engineers Without Borders traveled to Peru in summer 2013 to complete the first phase of a water system in the small mountainous community of La Pitajaya Alta. After six weeks of working with the community members, clean potable water was brought to every family in the community. In summer 2014, the Engineers Without Borders team completed the second part of the water system in La Pitajaya Baja, the lower part of the community. Video by Joshua Umansky-Castro, Class of 2017.
