Tetra Tech Helps Build a High School in Rural Zambia
Tetra Tech partnered with Engineers Without Borders (EWB) to help build a high school in Lumwana West, Zambia. Through the EWB Mid-Columbia Professionals (EWB-MCP) chapter in Washington state, Tetra Tech employees Lisa Dukes and Brian Peters are involved directly in helping complete the project. Lisa is a chapter member, and Brian is chapter Treasurer.
Their unique approach to help the community take ownership of this project has allowed community members to learn and develop new skills, sure to enrich their lives long after the high school’s completion. The high school will allow children in the area to continue their education and help to end the area’s cycle of poverty. Together, Tetra Tech and EWB-MCP are helping the children of Lumwana West change the trajectory of their lives. Education is a key deterrent to poverty, and the high school will bring a new road for the boys and girls of Lumwana to trek on.
