2016 Belize Open Source - Sustainable Development and Engineers Without Borders-USA (EWB-USA) in northern Belize

  1. 1. •  Established in 2004 •  ~ 200 acGve members •  8 infrastructure programs •  1 R&D Group (was Appropriate Technology Design Team (ATDT)) project •  ExecuGve Commiee and support commiees provide chapter management, fundraising, and publicity EWB-SFP NaGon’s 1st Professional Chapter
  2. 2. Where is Belize?
  3. 3. Belize up close •  Belize is small: About 175 miles, north-south, by 80 miles wide •  It has diverse land regions: cayes, barrier reef, beaches, tropical rain forests, caves with rivers running into them, mountain pine ridge, and savannahs (where we are) •  Belize is small enough and transportaGon is good enough that a stop at Belize Open Source can be included as part of your iGnerary, along with whatever else you choose to do in Belize •  If you visit Belize and volunteer with BOSSD, a reasonable porGon of your trip expenses can be tax deducGble
  4. 4. How to get involved •  Contact me: •  pat@coyles.com •  Belize Open Source: hp://belizeopensource.org •  SFP-EWB: hp://ewb-sfp.org/ •  EWB-USA: hp://www.ewb-usa.org/ •  Individual chapters and projects are accessible through the EWB-USA website •  Public Lab: hp://publiclab.org/
  5. 5. Cleveland State EWB project •  The new school building provides addiGonal space for the current overcrowded school that serves approximately 450 students and serves as a hurricane shelter for the general community •  A project-specific assessment trip was completed in May 2010 and the floor plan for the school was finalized and approved by the community •  Data on building material quality and availability was gathered along with material prices •  Detailed site soil samples were collected and shipped to CSU’s campus for laboratory tests. Soil characterisGcs were incorporated into the school building’s foundaGon design •  Soil characterisGcs for a leach field for the school building’s sepGc system were evaluated
  6. 6. Floor plan – classroom building
  7. 7. Cleveland State EWB funding •  The preliminary esGmate for construcGon, furnishing and ousitng the school was ~$150k USD •  The community agreed to raise $100k in cash and/or in-kind contribuGons (including labor) •  The CSU Chapter agreed to raise up to $50k (Coyle/ BOSSD helped in modest amounts) •  The community applied for funds to the Belize Natural Energy Trust (a fund organized by an oil company) for $50k and to the Social Improvement Fund (an internaGonal development fund in the Caribbean) •  (as of early August ‘12, the cost to date was ~$134k, with $61k from Belize and $73k from CSU EWB) •  ConstrucGon began in April, 2011 and was completed in 2012
  8. 8. CSU Project Manager/ Site Engineer and APR School Project Committee Chairman Julio Magaña at the completion of the project.
  9. 9. Classroom tiled and ready for use. The door is only open when the building is utilized as a hurricane shelter by the community. Similar doors allow passage throughout the building in safety.
  10. 10. Not everybody could be listed. We wish to also thank BASF, Parker Hannifin Company, and Belize Open Source, to name a few more.
  11. 11. While in Belize the leaking roof on the existing school was repaired. No more leaks. The black of the roof is the build up of ash from the burning of sugar cane. Because of the slope on the new school, each passing rain helps to keep the roof clean.
  12. 12. Anemometer installed on the roof of the other school building. Data collected by the students of APR is emailed to CSU engineering students working closely with Dr. Majid Rashidi and his wind amplification turbine system to properly size the wind turbines.
  13. 13. CSU Students Amy Kalabon (left) and Alice Summerville (Right) level stone for the leach field on the school property.
  14. 14. Completion of pipe runs to septic tanks behind the school. At this time the tanks are sealed and the pipes all covered.
  15. 15. Distribution box walls poured, top was added the next day and everything is now covered with fill material.
  16. 16. The leach field with all the pipes set awaiting the final cover of 18 inches of soil.
  17. 17. CSU status Nov 23, 2015, Norbert Delatte, the faculty advisor wrote EWB-USA staff: • We are not planning a 501B submittal for the Belize project because we have evaluated our proposed water project for the village and we don’t think it makes sense. There isn’t a need for it and the village wasn’t enthusiastic about it. • We are working on the 527 to close it out. I have a draft I have been working on. Our final M&E trip was on January 6 – 9, 2013.

  21. 21. Lamar University status September 2015, Document 527, Program Closeout Report indicates: • Our project consisted of designing a septic tank for the implementation of a modern restroom facility at St. Viator High School. Since the community has found other means of obtaining this restroom facility, our designs have now become obsolete. We are happy to hear of the progress at St. Viator High School, but have decided to start a new program in another part of the world. • We are thankful for the kindness you have shown, as well as patience you and your students have had with us. We apologize for not completing the project sooner and for the uncertainty you all must have experienced when we failed to correspond appropriately throughout these years.
  22. 22. Blanca Torres, principal of the August Pine Ridge school, wrote, “The aerial photo mapping seems very interesting. I shared with my children and sisters the images of our village … and they just loved them. … I welcome these opportunities where I can involve my students in new learning experiences. I am very interested in exposing them through your mapping project. We feel pride in having our community appear in internet pages and more if we are involved in getting those images.”
  23. 23. 2013 August Pine Ridge RC school mapping session
  24. 24. In progress and completed new classroom building Richard Obratil, former Chapter President, Project Manager/Site Engineer EWB-Cleveland State University Chapter, wrote, “... here is a picture of the building…”
  25. 25. 2013 Muffles Junior College, Belize mapping sessions
  26. 26. 2013 Muffles Junior College, Belize mapping sessions
  27. 27. Muffles Junior College, Belize mapping • Did two hands-on training and mapping sessions with Rafael Castillo, the faculty advisor, and the Environmental Club at the Muffles Junior College campus near Orange Walk Town • Left them with a complete KAP mapping kit • Put a sustainable mapping capability in place at Muffles which can serve the Environmental Science program
  28. 28. Site: Belize Open Source Sustainable Development •  This 40-acre rural property is located in northwestern Belize near the Mexican and Guatemala borders about 16 miles from Orange Walk Town, between the villages of August Pine Ridge and San Felipe and 3.5 miles to the Rio Hondo Belize/Mexico border belizeopensource.org •  Google Maps shows it, but unGl recently, two more clicks in and you ran out of pixels – it’s beer now

  31. 31. 2014 Belize Open Source mapping sessions
  32. 32. ComposGng Latrine Status •  The first composGng toilets were working great •  User acceptance was high •  GeneraGon and use of compost for agricultural applicaGons was successful •  The community wanted more units
  33. 33. Phase 2 (cont.) •  July 2014: AN selected parGcipants in community of El Lllanito •  August 2014: Material Procurement prior to construcGon started •  August 19-August 31, 2014: ConstrucGon •  Post ConstrucGon: DocumentaGon – in progress
  34. 34. Phase 2 Planning (cont.) •  Goal: build fourteen composGng toilets in El Llanito community using the new design ($336/toilet) •  Alcance Nicaragua responsibiliGes: materials procurement and transportaGon, idenGfying new beneficiaries, managing the construcGon, and collecGng beneficiaries’ contribuGon (40% of cost)
  35. 35. Phase 2 Planning (cont.) •  July 2014: AN selects parGcipants •  August 2014: Material Procurement prior to construcGon start •  August 19-August 31: ConstrucGon •  Post ConstrucGon: •  DocumentaGon
  36. 36. Post ConstrucIon: DocumentaIon – in progress
  37. 37. Post ConstrucIon: Structural evaluaIon/upgrades •  Our team completed structural evaluaGon and developed inexpensive upgrades to improve the integrity of the structure •  Add concrete masonry units (CMUs) with rebar and grout at the corners of the base vault structure to add moment resistance •  Limit the force into the base vault structure from the upper superstructure, via graceful failure so detaches from the base vault structure in high wind loads (~80mph)
  38. 38. Structural evaluaIon/upgrades
  39. 39. Next steps •  The EWB team has raised funds to do more composGng toilets for the families that need them •  Almost $3k through an IndieGoGo campaign •  $7.5k grant from EWB-SFP chapter •  My Rotary Club of Livermore and our NGO partnered with the Masaya Nicaragua Rotary club for a Global Grant (GG) for $37.5k, enough to do about 80 more units •  Rotary Club of Castro Valley allocated funds (DDF) to get us to $15k min •  EWB-SFP ATDT is donaGng $5k •  The Rotary FoundaGon approved the applicaGon – funds are in Nicaragua with the Masaya Rotary Club and we are preparing to start the next phase
