Canterbury In-Schools

Canterbury kicked off its In-Schools programme with a visit to Hagley Community College on the 16th and 17th of this month. After training a group of fantastic volunteers we presented the 'Water for Life' teaching module to two year 9 and 10 classes who thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The kids and teachers were really enthusiastic and have already asked us to come back next year!

EWB Placement Opportunity in Vanuatu!

We are looking for a volunteer to work on the Wawan Villages Water Supply Project. This will include a 6 month placement in North East Ambrym, Vanuatu, which is planned to commence in August 2014.

The project will supply water to 3 remote villages in Vanuatu through rainwater harvesting. The volunteer will be closely working with the Wawan Fonhal Development Council, a local group of women who are responsible for the community projects in the area. The placement will involve capacity development of the Council and of the community as a whole, project management, construction supervision and scoping of future initiatives.
