Experts Exchange Staffer Visits Water Wells in Ethiopia

Posted by · October 20, 2011 8:26 am

Here at Experts Exchange, we’ve always been proud of our community, but this year our Experts and staff members really exceeded our expectations–and made our hearts burst with pride–when they partnered with local charity WaterRun to work together to build not one, but two water wells in Ethiopia.

For the past 10 days, Experts Exchange Usability Coordinator Megan Farrell (who spearheaded the fundraising here at the Experts Exchange office) has been in Ethiopia checking out the wells and visiting the people (including an entire school of children) who benefit from the wells.  Megan blogged about her experience over on her Experts Exchange blog, Mighty Megan.

Next week, we’ll be interviewing Megan about her trip and Glen Knight, one of the Experts who was instrumental in getting other  Experts on board with fundraising for the wells, will join the discussion as well.  In the meantime, be sure to read Megan’s blog and watch the video we put together about our efforts to build these wells.

A huge thanks to all of our Experts and staff members who helped bring clean drinking water to so many people.  You are touching more lives than you know.
