Mandari Panga is a community within the Ecuadorian Yasuni National Park in the Amazon Rainforest and will be CEDC’s first project in Ecuador! The community needs a strengthened education system. To increase education, specific needs of the community need to be addressed. The priority is creating better living spaces for the teachers that live in the community while they teach. Teachers are imported from the cities to live in Mandari Panga to teach for an extended time. Because the living situation is grim, teachers do not get sent to Mandari Panga often or consistently causing major gaps in education. To initially address this problem, this project team will design a water treatment system in the community center for the teachers and other members of the community to use. This project aims to evaluate the community layout and begin to research potential methods to address the problem during this semester.
