LA CRIBA, EL SALVADOR

Rams Without Borders CSU has been working with the community of La Criba, El Salvador for the past decade. In 2016, RWB installed a water distribution tank and transmission line for the community after an earthquake left them with no way to get water. The community now has a new chlorination system for the tank and RWB is exploring erosion mitigation on the transmission line to complete the project.

PINE RIDGE, SOUTH DAKOTA

Rams Without Borders is working in Pine Ridge, South Dakota with the Lakota community to provide them with an earthship. The building is designed to be completely self-sustainable with renewable energy and a rain catchment system and will be equipped to fit the needs of the Lakota people as a community center, housing, office space, and greenhouse. Construction started on the project in 2017.

EL PITAL/LAS TABLAS, EL SALVADOR

Similar to the project in La Criba, Rams Without Borders CSU has been working with the community of El Pital and Las Tablas, El Salvador for the past couple years.

GUATEMALA

A very new project, Rams Without Borders CSU plans to renovate an ecotourism site in Bio-Itza, Guatemala. This project aims to build eco cottages, a pavilion, a water system, and a power system. The cottages will be structured to provide a fitting “camp” like feeling. The pavilion will be used for medicinal workshops. The water system involves catching rainwater, filtering it, and then storing it in 3 tanks until needed. The power system will consist of solar panels and storage batteries.
