El Salvador Project.
The El Salvador Project is a charitable volunteer project that provides simple and effective engineering solutions to poor communities in El Salvador who frequently face devastating earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and landslides.
Since winning the Award for Sustainability for our Housing for Low-Income Communities in El Salvador in collaboration with Arup, we have decided to move in a new direction. In the summer of 2015, a small team went out to El Salvador to evaluate how we could improve sanitation in rural communities enabling us to send a new team of volunteers out this summer. We are focussing on building latrines and clean water infrastructure this year which hopefully is a start to a new exciting phase of the project!
