Kelsey Eichbauer spent most of her summer helping design and build systems to treat and recycle greywater for the community in Bluefields, Nicaragua. This is the wastewater from baths, sinks, kitchen appliances, laundry — essentially anywhere but the toilet. The work was part of the Global Leadership Program with blueEnergy, a nonprofit dedicated to providing energy, clean water, and sanitation in coastal Caribbean areas.
Undergraduate student Emily Ferrando traveled to Sabana Grande, Nicaragua, over the summer to intern with an organization called Grupo Fenix. Ferrando says the trip, paid for by the Mundy Global Learning Endowment, reaffirmed her desire to work in environmental remediation after graduation.
