מי שתייה ראויים ואנרגיה סולארית לתושבי הכפר מינג'ינגו

רקע 

פרויקט טנזניה החל בשנת 2007. משלחת ארגון "ברית עולם", בראשות איתי פרי ולירון יוחאי, ובשיתוף עם סטודנטים מאוניברסיטת תל אביב נסעה אל הכפר מינג'ינגו שבמחוז בבטי בצפון טנזניה. מטרת המשלחת הייתה סיוע לילדי הכפר באמצעים חינוכיים והומניטריים שונים.

       

הרצון לסייע לילדי הכפר נולד עת שטייל איתי פרי, ראש המשלחת, באזור ונחשף לבעיות הרפואיות ולקשיים היומיומיים של אותם ילדים ותושבים רבים בכפר. באזור זה של טנזניה, רוויים מי השתייה בכמות גבוהה וחריגה של יסוד הפלואוריד . הפלואוריד במי השתייה גורם, לבעיות התפתחותיות קשות, בעיקר אצל ילדים, אשר מתבטאות בעיוותי שלד, שפה שסועה, בעיות דנטליות ועוד.

בקבות זאת עת  שהוקם סניף 'מהנדסים ללא גבולות' באוניברסיטת תל אביב, הוחלט ליזום פרויקט לטיהור מים בכפר.

בשלב הבא, פעלו חברי הפרויקט השונים למען קידום הפרויקט בכל צורה אפשרית. מהר מאוד התברר, בנוסף לעקרונות הארגון שדחפו לכך, כי יש צורך בנסיעת משלחת לכפר לצורך סקירה מעמיקה של הנושא. במשך כשנתיים פעלו חברי הפרויקט השונים ליצירת קשר עם ארגונים מקומיים, במטרה , להכיר ככל הניתן את המורכבות החברתית בכפר, ואת הבעיה הספציפית במי השתייה. מטרה נוספת הייתה יצירת קשר עם גורמים מקצועיים בארץ ובחו"ל וגיוס כספים למען הפרויקט.

neve paz team

Strengthening the sense of belonging to between the community and the residents of the Neve Paz neighborhood to improve their way of life

The group was established in 2018 at the Technion branch.

This will encourage the community to become closer and stronger together. It can directly affect personal safety, visibility, etc., and indirectly, it can create a group of people who will work with the municipality towards a better future for the neighborhood. This is EWB's first urban partnership that has brought new opportunities and challenges in working with a range of partners and stakeholders

Fortunately, community members are active in the project and the work is supported by the Haifa Municipality

Afek school team

Working with the Afek School in East Jerusalem, to encourage and raise awareness of sustainability through technological environmental education

The school includes a wide variety of children and staff who want to teach and learn everything about sustainability in a fun and practical way. This has allowed the group to work with them on various projects like building a turbine on the roof of the school, and countless lessons related to the environment and technology. The purpose of the group is to expose the children to a different perspective of the world; the community, the environment and especially how they perceive their abilities and possibilities. Knowing that these children will be the leaders of tomorrow. The group strives to encourage the development of leaders, citizens and more environmental-technological-related professionals

technion team - amdi wayne

Improving the health of the local community in Amdi Wayne, Makla, Ethiopia

The group currently works with the community on two main issues; lack of clean drinking water and sanitation at the local school and indoor air pollution caused by cooking. The improved stove project is trying to address the second topic or issue. The traditional way of cooking in most homes is over an open fire surrounded by bricks by using wood or manure as fuel. This is done inside the family home or in a small, separate building next to it. Inside the same house, cooking causes internal air pollution and therefore many members of the community (especially women) suffer from issues with respiratory, skin, eyes and other illnesses. The main goal of this project is to improve community health, especially among women
