Australian native, Shane Elson has 15+ years of engineering experience in both private consultancies and local government.
His current role involves engineering & cultural research for the initial purpose of providing clean water and waste water solutions for the rural areas of Southern Kalimantan, Indonesia. This is a remote corner of the world with many important needs. His goal is to reduce the general mortality rate, especially infant mortality of children under 5.
“Our dream is to impact the lives of the people as we bring life changing information and education. Our approach is culturally sensitive and relevant as we seek to partner with the local leaders and develop solutions together with the help of our resident anthropologist.” Shane says.
Shane was introduced to us by our mutual friend and Moore County soil scientist, Bill Dunlop, who also joins the discussion.
