Riley Mulhern (Geophysics '14) worked for six months with the organization Nuevas Esperanzas on the northern slopes of the Telica volcano in Nicaragua to identify water resources for volcano communities. Nuevas Esperanzas provides practical and technical assistance to communities in Nicaragua as they seek to establish sustainable livelihoods which lift them out of poverty and encourages transformational development at all levels of society. Riley's internship was part of the Human Needs and Global Resources (HNGR) program, an interdisciplinary program at Wheaton College, open for students from all majors, which aims to promote in students a commitment to confronting human needs through their lifestyle and vocational decisions.
