Joseph Thiel, a return-traveler, explains the blueprints for a composting latrine to our Kenyan Fellow, John (left), and Frederick (right), a construction contractor. One of the biggest challenges for EWB - MSU working with Kenyan communities is communication. EWB -MSU often faces a language barrier, as many workers do not speak English. To help with this, EWB - MSU hires translators/guides who assist in clearing up communication between EWB - MSU and the workers building building the latrines. Sometimes laborers are unfamiliar with the use of blueprints and two-dimensional plans. EWB - MSU travelers check in on worksites daily to ensure construction is progressing as planned and to provide guidance for any questions that may arise.
