Water for the West: Inclusive and Sustainable Collaboration by Water for the West
Please find below the
Creating bridges is essential the work to build community engagement and this proposal presents a great combined goal of environment, community collaboration and social justice!
The useful service is very apparent in this project and applauded. It is also a functional place to begin the conversation of conservation in low-income communities.
Please think of this when revising your proposal:
1. The project title is misleading. The proposal is about both energy conservation and saving water. It’s not just about the water.
2. Will the work start with a home energy/water audit? That will be critical.
3. Will real time energy and water monitors be installed in the homes? That will be helpful for identify the improvements to be made, and critical for monitoring the short and long term impact of this project.
4. I suggest that the students make a home visit first before starting any training. It will be very helpful for them to have a visual image and goal in mind before they start the training. The training could be much more effective once they have that.
5. For language issues, I’m sure you can find Spanish speaking volunteers in the community who can make the home visits with the student(s).
6. How will the community be built and what happens after the widgets are delivered?
