Utuado, Puerto Rico is our next international project. Twelve bridges are out, all school buildings are destroyed or damaged, and water system is destroyed. At present, water borne illness incidence is high. All roads into Utuado are impassable. Central population is about 10,000.
This project brought the collaboration with Engineers for a Sustainable World from UTEP. Dr. Ivonne Santiago, from UTEP, has had several conversations with the community organizer and mayor from Utuado. She is from Puerto Rico and is a Professional Engineer licensed in Puerto Rico.
The second week of January 2018, we will be sending a few students from NMSU and UTEP to go survey the area and narrow down the project.
Foxhole Homes has been recognized as a not for profit corporation. Their mission is to provide sustainable housing and community for Veterans in need.
Aggies WIthout Limits has committed to help out 4 weekends for the spring semester. We are still working on scheduling.
Summer 2016, Aggies Without Limits went to Alamogordo to test Rammed earth and Adobe. This was to help figure out which was best suited for housing.
