RISE recently won the Tsinghua University Student Social Practice Gold Prize for volunteering in Ningxia. The prize was awarded to the Ningxia Biosand Filter Promotion Team at the 2014 Tsinghua Practice Annual Conference (T-PAC). To recognise and promote outstanding student social practice projects, the Communist Youth League (Tuanwei) awarded gold prizes to 20 of the nearly 300 Tsinghua summer social practice teams.
The RISE Ningxia team wrote a report of their findings and water quality results from the trip, and presented at the T-PAC assessment meeting and conference. We were successful in convincing the attendees of the value of our project. On the day of the Annual Conference, we got the chance to show off our full-scale biosand filter outside the universityâ€™s auditorium and explain the biosand filter concept to students.
