Former Jubilee Center HNGR intern Hillary Waters returned to Zambia to research intersections between urban water issues, such as access, quality, and pollution, and industrial mining. The motivation for her current research came out of her time at the Jubilee Center when she worked on a research project about priorities in urban development. Neighborhood Resident Development Committees found water to be a crucial need for development in Ndola yet one residents felt they had little control over. Currently a PhD student at the University of Minnesota in the Geography department, Hillary hopes to return to Zambia for her dissertation research next year and she hopes her research will have a positive impact. In welcoming Hilary, Executive Director of Jubilee Centre, Pastor Lawrence Temfwe, said that he was touched by Hilary’s research work because it showed commitment to people’s real need. Currently, Jubilee Centre is hosting another intern from Wheaton College. Megan Pawlak arrived in June and returns to the USA in November.
