It is our great pleasure to invite you and your colleagues to the American Society of Civil Engineers Georgia Section 2018 Charity Golf Invitational. This is an excellent opportunity for ASCE Georgia members, guests, sponsors and vendors to network & support a great cause.

Proceeds from the tournament will go to continued efforts in the remote Nicaraguan villages along the Rio Grande de Matagalpa, specifically to ensure the availability of safe drinking water.

More Information on the Cause:
Our group was very impressed with both organizations we partnered with on the 2016 bridge project in Nicaragua. Rivers of the World, in partnership with Nicaragua-based Peace and Hope Frontier Mission (PHFM), serve 13 villages along the Rio Grande de Matagalpa. In April, thanks to the support from ASCE Georgia’s 2016 Charity Golf Tournament, a team of ASCE Georgia members designed and constructed a 90-foot pedestrian bridge that will provide safe crossing for children and other villagers to their local school and church, particularly during rainy season. Check out the finished product below!

While in Nicaragua, PHFM Executive Director, Peter Coleman took the team to visit some drinking water wells in nearby villages that were experiencing contamination issues. We were able to take a rough sample of the water for testing. The testing revealed non-compliance with our EPA standards and the presence of lead, copper, iron and manganese. We know all too well the impacts of heavy metals in drinking water. In effort to improve access to decontaminated drinking water, we are looking to partner with Rotary as part of their Global Grant program to raise money to provide a solar-powered advanced filtration unit for the villages.
