hydroponics for milwaukee

In 2017 the UWW-Enactus team decided to take this program and bring it to schools in the Milwaukee area. The project is currently underway and aims to educate young students in a predominantly Spanish-speaking community to learn about the benefits of hydroponics, nutrition and helping them build "hydroponic kits"

PROJECT KIRAN

 Project Kiran focuses on educating young women in India to become nurses to work in remote rural eye clinics. This visionary 2 year program transforms the lives of these young women and enables them to change their lives and help give eyesight back to the people in remote villages. Our partners in this project include Combat Blindness International, Dr. Shroff's Charity Eyecare Hospital (SCEH) and nursing students and faculty in Madison College.

Certified ophthalmic personnel program

This program will train these young women to fulfill a variety roles as eye care personnel; including ophthalmic nursing assistants, vision technicians, medical records & registration, or patient counseling — in just 2 years of school. These positions will reduce the strain on higher-level personnel, like ophthalmologists, so that they can focus on sight-restoring procedures and surgeries.

The COP program presents truly empowering opportunities to these young women that would otherwise not be available to them; the opportunity to be exposed to a new environment in urban Delhi outside rural villages, it teaches communication and life skills, and presents them with a healthy sense of self-esteem and self-worth.

UWW-Enactus Role

The needs assessment indicated that there is a dire need to increase the bandwidth for the number of cataract surgeries. But this cannot be done without the help of nurses, particularly in the remote rural areas of India. The COP program was started by the SCEH, financially supported by Combat Blindness but they needed help to reach more students.

UWW Enactus was asked to put together educational modules that could help support the current educational program and help expand the bandwidth.

The educational modules are currently being evaluated and the modules will also be used to reach programs in Kenya, Botswana and other locations served by Combat Blindness.

HYDROPONICS FOR HONDURAS (H4H)

 Hydroponics 4 Honduras or H4H is a program designed to help students learn about nutrition and hydroponics. Our team helped build a hydroponics greenhouse in the Linaca valley of Honduras in partnership with the World Resources Group. The greenhouse is fully operational and the students, volunteers and instructors are already starting to grow crops. The UWW-Enactus team is looking for ways to grow the program and make it sustainable. In 2017, the team has focused on bringing this program to schools in the Milwaukee area.

UWW-ENACTUS ROLE

This multi-year project started with an Indiegogo campaign to help raise funds for the hydroponics greenhouse. The project has continued with the team continuing to raise funds and develop educational modules for educating the children on hydroponics. Recently the project has been moved to focus on schools in Milwaukee, WI.
