Changing lives around the globe
Kim Teoli, a General Engineer for Delmarva, has volunteered at various Engineers without Borders (EWB) chapters for more than six years. EWB is a nationwide organization that partners with communities in developing countries to help meet basic human needs.
As the Vice President of the Newark Delaware Professional Chapter, Kim has partnered with Water is Life Kenya to build rainwater catching systems for students at the Imurtot Primary School in Kenya. As many of the school’s students currently do not have access to a consistently reliable water source, she is eager to begin the 5 year-long Kenya Rainwater Catchment Project. The Achievement Award grant will directly benefit initial implementation efforts and help expedite the overall project, which ultimately aims to improve the health conditions and expand the educational opportunities for individuals in the surrounding communities.
