In July of 2012, a group of Oregon State University students traveled to the small village of Lela, Kenya, to help the community gain access to safe water. 

The story of their journey will be told in “Kel Wer” (“to bring song” in the native Dholuo language), a documentary that will debut at Kearney Hall, room 112 at Oregon State University in a free public screening Tuesday. It will explore the challenges the students faced and the welcoming and resilient people they met along the way.

Doors will open to the public at 6 p.m., a photography exhibit of the people of Lela will be available for viewing in the lobby, and the 30-minute documentary will start at 6:30 p.m.

Following the screening, members of Oregon State’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders will share their personal experiences and answer questions. Seating is limited and available on a first-come basis.

The documentary was directed by Justin Smith. The project is a collaboration between the OSU College of Engineering and OSU University Relations and Marketing.
