Tuesday, August 14, 2018

A team from FLC and Durango spent more than two weeks in May constructing a water system and communal taps in Than Taung, Myanmar.

The Village Aid Project is an all-volunteer campus program, open to students in any major, that brings together students, faculty, and community professionals to improve the infrastructure in impoverished communities in Latin America and Asia. 

This spring's team included two faculty, three community partners, and eight FLC students, who travelled to the Shan State, in Myanmar. There they also conducted monitoring and evaluation in five communities where water systems were implemented in prior years, and assessed new communities for water implementation projects in the summer of 2019.
