Skype Call 11/6/2013
Today we had the opportunity to speak with Spencer Reeves via Skype about our project. We were able to cover things like native plant species, cultural aspects of people in Haiti, and plentiful resources. From this call we have learned that education is going to be a major component of this project. Instead of supplying people with a product that then creates a dependency, we’d rather give them the knowledge and tools to build a filter themselves. This would not only reduce the chance of creating a dependency, but would also provide the chance to learn skills and possibly create some job opportunities for the locals.
