Description

Women and young girls trek vast distances carrying heavy buckets of water to supply the rural village of Marwa, in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania. Beginning in 2015, Ohio State faculty and students established the service-learning project Maji to create a suite of manageable water systems to alleviate the deficit. In 2017, the group designed and installed an initial system for rainwater harvesting and storage. This summer, Buckeyes are returning to Tanzania to install another rainwater collection and storage system. The group’s larger goal is to begin the initial stages of a project that will see 23 miles of pipeline running to the Pangani River, which flows from Mount Kilimanjaro. #BuckeyesAbroad Ohio State Outreach and Engagement Learn more via BTN: http://btn.com/2019/05/04/how-ohio-state-engineering-students-are-bringing-clean-water-to-an-tanzanian-village-btn-livebig/
