Sierra Leone Program

EWB-Princeton's Sierra Leone flagship project is located in Dorma Village, near Koidu in the Kono District, Sierra Leone. Working with contacts associated with a Wellbody Alliance clinic in the area which was started in 2006 by a Princeton alumnus in order to provide free healthcare to amputees and wounded from the country's recent civil war, the team is planning a year-round solar power well and sanitation project to improve the health and lives of Dorma residents. The team recently completed an official EWB Assessment Trip this past summer to establish community contacts, conduct baseline technical tests, and lay the foundation for implementation. Our focus in the next year will focus on working with Sierra Leonean contractors to create technical designs and designing technical and sanitation curriculums to be used alongside implementation.
