Congratulations to EFOD for Winning the ACE Engineering Excellence Awards 2015 in Building Structure

Engineers for Overseas Development (EFOD) challenges teams of young construction volunteers to design and build schemes in Africa for some of the poorest in society.  Over the last 12 months the organisation has sunk 2 boreholes, built a mill, and 2 grain stores for widows and women’s cooperatives in Kachumbala, NE Uganda, allowing them to work themselves out of poverty.  The teams have also completed the design and started construction of a Maternity Unit at the Local Health Centre in the same area which will upgrade the provision of just 2 maternity rooms for a District of 55,000 people and 5 births per day to modern standards.
