Virtual Training for Ecuador

On December 4th, we hosted a virtual training session for representatives from our partners at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador and FEPP in Ecuador. Modern technology allows us to empower people around the world with life-saving knowledge and tools, without ever having to leave our headquarters.

Charity of Choice for Robotics

WaterStep was proud to be the charity of choice at the FIRST Lego League regional tournament this past Saturday. Over 60 schools participated in the robotics tournament, which was held at Oldham County Middle School. The students collected shoes for WaterStep, and our Community Project Manager, Natalie Bonura spoke at their opening ceremony and answered questions.
