May – August 2008
Tyler Rosen and Taryn Meyers were travelled to Ghana to use their skills and knowledge in civil engineering to help with several on-going development programs and initiatives. They worked with Friends of the Earth on the Lake Bosumtwe project. The goal of the project was to conserve the globally significant flora and fauna of the lake’s basin in an integrated manner through support for traditional practices and a community-based conservation program. They participated in water and sanitation projects in the town of Gomoa Dago in the Central Region of Ghana and worked with two other students from the Department of Civil Engineering at the University in Kumasi to design a library. Finally, Taryn and Tyler worked with staff of SNC-Lavalin (a Canadian consulting company) and the Ghana Water Resources Commission on the Hydrogeological Assessment Project in Accra.
