1Epi Village currently uses a hand/bicycle pump that was installed in the early 2000’s and is in need of replacement or repair parts. This is the pump that the school uses. Fixing or replacing would ensure that students spend more time learning and less time collecting water from the river.
2Epi Village currently uses hand-crank lanterns as the village exists in a gridless environment; solar panels will allow them to produce, store, and use their own electricity.
