Working with Temple University – Engineers Without Borders (EWB), fellow Quaker Christopher Fantozzi is currently working on an important sanitation project for the small indigenous community of Nueva Jerusalen, Ecuador. The community has no sewage facilities and is forced to rely solely on open defecation, which is causing contamination of the nearby stream and river they use as their drinking water source. The Temple team is evaluating several options including the installation of compost toilets in each home, which would be a sustainable, appropriate technology that could significantly improve the quality of life of the entire community.

All of these efforts are completely volunteer based and funded, and additional financing is greatly needed to cover the project’s costs for travel and materials. Please consider supporting these efforts with a tax-deductible donation if you are able.
