“The Brufut Women’s Garden Improvement Project” presented by Carolyn Coffey, Biosystems Engineering, Clemson Engineers Without Borders


Clemson University’s Engineers Without Borders Student Chapter has begun a new project in a small village in The Gambia. We are designing an irrigation system and improving farming techniques for a 16-acre garden managed and operated by the women of the Brufut community. We plan to travel within the next year to begin implementing our design. It is our hope to encourage sustainable solutions that promote internal development and community involvement.

About 2015 Clemson Global Symposium

The Clemson Global Symposium was created by a collaboration of recent Clemson Alumni, current Clemson students, faculty, and staff, with their eyes on the following mission: To foster the awareness of cross-cultural understanding through opportunities for overseas service and/or academic and research activities; and to encourage the engagement of Clemson students in taking on global responsibilities and problem solving in partnership with citizens from other countries. With funding from the Diversity Office, the keynote addresses and 20 sessions from the Symposium were filmed and will be showcased here on ClemsonTV. The presentations were made by current or recent Clemson University students, for students, and represent a variety of service, study, research, and internships abroad experiences, during or after Clemson years.
