Grants received by the chapter are distributed between the chapter’s two current projects.  Thus far, the chapter’s main source of revenue has been grants from Harvard University. This year, they  have strengthened their relationship with larger funding sources like the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the Phillips Brooks House Center for Public Service and Engaged Scholarship, and the Harvard Global Health Institute.

Assessment Trip - Los Sanchez, DR

Following a successful monitoring trip to Pinalito last March, HUEWB has expanded its efforts into the neighboring community of Los Sanchez. The goal of this new project is to provide the community with reliable access to clean drinking water, which they currently lack. A travel team of 7 students and 1 professional mentor visited Los Sanchez this January for an assessment trip, where they conducted household surveys, collected geological data, and tested water samples.
