CLUBHOUSE GUATEMALA | Knox ProCorps sent a team to Guatemala in February 2014 to assist Clubhouse Guatemala in evaluating and designing a water system for the school purchased by Clubhouse Guatemala. The goal is to provide water to the school prior to its opening in December 2014.
MOZAMBIQUE, AFRICA | Knox ProCorps sent a small team to Mozambique in February 2014 to assist Iris Ministries in Pemba and the Morningstar School in Chokwe. Both facilities serve the poor and needy in their respective areas. The KPC team helped the local staff assess their water, sanitation and storm water drainage situations. Stateside teams will be formed to create design documents which will make recommendations of how to address each ministries problems.
APPALACHIAN AREA | Knox ProCorps is assisting Appalachia Service Project (ASP). ASP is a Christian ministry which serves Central Appalachia through volunteer home repair. Many of the homes that ASP repairs do not have proper septic systems which is a wide scale problem in Central Appalachia that impairs water quality and places people at risk of illness.
THOMAZEAU, HAITI | The proposed community water system for Thomazeau Haiti is moving along in design. Because the new system for the community of approximately 10,000 people will involve the repair and expansion of an older system, testing to determine what can be salvaged versus what needs to be replaced is scheduled in March, 2014. A small Knox ProCorps team for this "integrity testing" will work with local volunteers and government officials to finalize the design, with the goal of constructing the new system in early Summer. The overall project is expected to cost approximately $80,000.
