This summer I am participating in the Stanford Summer Service Learning Program (SSLP).

Eight of us are going to Argentina for five weeks to work on the water sanitation system in Córdoba. Argentina is considered one of the more developed countries in Latin America, but the population size has outgrown the sewage system. As you can imagine, there are flooding and sanitation issues. Our group is looking at developing solutions in partnership with the local government and universities. To prepare we took a class that immersed us in Argentinean culture and the problem at hand. We don’t want to show up and throw our American ideals on people.
