Two years of nights and weekends devoted to planning and design. Two years of writing reports, making presentations, and getting official approval. Two years of raising money. Two trips to the remote community of Oloo, Uganda.
And it all came down to this: connecting a chain to a hand pump and drawing up clean water for a village in desperate need of it.
Three Georgia Tech students traveled to Oloo to drill the new well that will serve about 400 villagers.
"Seeing those little kids dipping their cups in that stream was one of the most satisfying feelings I have ever had," said biomedical engineering student Meghan Reid.
