Event Details

Kel Wer documentary screening

Tuesday, April 30, 2013 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

KEL WER means “to bring song” in Dholuo, the native language of Lela, Kenya. In July 2012, residents of Lela partnered with the Oregon State University student chapter of Engineers Without Borders USA to bring their community greater access to safe drinking water. This 35-minute film documents the students’ journey to bring water (and song) to a community of resourceful, resilient and friendly people in desperate need.

Doors open at 6 p.m. with a photography exhibit of the people of Lela. The 30-minute documentary will start at 6:30 p.m. Following the screening, members of Oregon State's chapter of Engineers Without Borders will share their personal experiences and answer questions.
