I have written about Sooners Without Borders for the past two semesters, and I am here to do an update on my experience with the program this past semester. Unfortunately, I do think that this will be my last semester with Sooners Without Borders, just because the program doesn’t meet as often as I would like, and also doesn’t do as many programs as I would like. I think I mentioned this earlier, but the organization is aimed a little bit more toward engineering majors, and since I am not engineering, it really isn’t inline with my interests or career plans. In fact, the organization did used to be called Engineers without Borders, but the name of the program was changed so it would appeal to students of all majors, but most of the students involved are engineering majors and the main trip it does to El Salvador during spring break is engineering oriented. Also, a lot of the members are older, and many are even graduate students, so I haven’t really made any relationships with people in the organization. Meetings still don’t happen every week, which I wish they did, but instead are based on when the group has a speaker. The president of the group will send out an email alerting everyone that there will be a meeting that week, however often times this meeting is sent last minute. The organization does still have a relationship with Earth Rebirth. I mentioned this in my post about Sooners Without Borders last semester, but it’s still so interesting how last spring semester we discussed doing a bottle house fundraiser for Sister Rosemary, and then I actually got to go to Uganda and see a bottle house in person. It was amazing how at the time I really didn’t know anything about Sister Rosemary, but a few months later I developed a personal relationship with her that will continue for many years to come. Collection of water bottles for these houses is really important because the houses are truly built from thousands of water bottles, and in Uganda it is extremely expensive to buy bottles of water. Fun Fact: The bottle houses are really cool inside, even when it is extremely hot outside, and there is no air conditioning in these houses. I am really excited to see the new progress that the compounds in Uganda have made with the pop bottle houses.
