Im back in Australia and will start work for GHD on the 30th of August.  When I returned I was informed that I recently won an award for engineering.  I was very shocked, but pleased to see that people working in engineering in fields outside of the normal can be recognized and appreciated.  Thanks to Toby Turner for the nomination.  Toby visited the project in Tanzania last year.

The MSABI team back in Tanzania is very busy.  They have completed their 70th rope pump installation.  The education team has increased from 2 to 13 persons thanks to the sponsored program from TBL Breweries.  The education team is completing an intensive 2 week training course this week.  Mirco has also been continuing his work with the latrines in Namwawala and reports that he is very positive about the uptake of the compost design and the willingness of the owners to make the necessary behavioral changes so that they function as intended.

More detailed information will follow from the volunteers themselves.
