On June 20, 2013 the staff and children at COVE Center warmly welcomed the University of Illinois staff and students.
For the past two days of their stay, LINC team met with the Tiva water team and Connect Africa representatives. The Tiva water team & Connect Africa representative presented the use of filters and concrete filters to the school and the dispensary respectively. These meetings provided the staffs, in the dispensary and the school, with procedures for installation and utilization of the filters. The patients, in the dispensary, left their beds and observed the installation procedures of the concrete filters and asked questions.The schedule for the LINC team will be to carry out the assessment of the 50 acres of land ear marked for agriculture; filtration education workshops with students of COVE primary school; community outreach; Vocational School survey in Kampala and visit Connect Africa, where they will meet with Dr. Musaazi of Makerere University to discuss community capacity-building and work with concrete bio-sand filters. God Bless their efforts.
