In July 2012, residents of Lela, Kenya partnered with the Oregon State University student chapter of Engineers Without Borders USA to bring the Kenyan community greater access to safe drinking water (Kel Wer means “to bring song” in Dholuo, the native language of Lela). The film Kel Wer documents the OSU students’ journey to bring water (and song) to a community of resourceful, resilient, friendly people in desperate need.
In conjunction with this free premiere of Kel Wer, a photography exhibit on the people of Kenya will be on view. A Q&A with OSU’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders whose efforts are documented in the film will share their personal experiences and answer questions.
