Assessment Trip | Field Notes from January 11, 2016

On Day 3, the EWB Rubaya team met with a local licensed engineer and architect to discuss technical details and local construction practices for building the maize processing facility and understand requirements for the machinery. The team then had meetings with the Rubaya Agronomist and Executive Secretary to discuss the community's agricultural practices to get a better picture of how best the EWB team will be helping. Throughout the day, the team continued to interview Rubaya community members to get a view of daily life.
