Anvil employees have been participating in Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB-USA) since shortly after its founding in 2002, working to enhance the lives of others by improving the living conditions of those in developing countries. Anvil’s Mike Moora and other members of the EWB Alaska Professional Chapter (EWB-APC) recently traveled to Malawi to begin assessment of a new water treatment and distribution system for a local community. When completed, this project will enable the distribution of clean water to several thousand villagers.
The Alaska Chapter has been supporting Malawi Children’s Village (MCV) and Open Arms Infant Home since 2008. In 2012, they commissioned a new treatment system to provide safe drinking water to over 500 students and staff at the facility. Moora and the EWB-APC team provided design, procurement, construction management, and operator training to MCV staff to own and operate a fully functioning water treatment system that provides safe drinking water for the community.
We are very proud of our employees who volunteer their time and skill to change the lives of others and build strong and sustainable communities around the world.
