Safe Water in Ecuador


Safe Water in Ecuador (SWIE) is a special project of the Section's. The group was founded to help bring safe, clean water to communities in Ecuador.

The Section provides support through staff assistance, management of funds, and promoting SWIE activities. However, SWIE funds all of its projects through fundraising. Michigan water professionals have been very generous over the years. Through the Annual Golf Outing, a silent auction, and various raffles, SWIE has been able to support quite a number of water projects in Ecuador.

Members are welcome to volunteer to participate in the annual trip to Ecuador. Trips are at your own expense but always provide a life changing experience.
