Description

Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB-USA) is a nonprofit humanitarian organization established to support community-driven development programs worldwide through partnerships that design and implement sustainable engineering projects, while providing transformative experiences that enrich global perspectives and create responsible leaders.

Today, more than two billion people lack access to the most basic things--clean drinking water, adequate sanitation, reliable passage to local markets and more. EWB-USA’s vision is a world in which the communities they serve have the capacity to sustainably meet their basic human needs.

At its core, EWB-USA’s model is rooted in practical and sustainable engineering solutions. In order to be successful, EWB-USA considers the socio-cultural dimensions of the community, local project ownership and other requirements for long-term sustainability. EWB-USA programs are full partnerships with a host community and one or more local non-governmental organizations. EWB-USA members work alongside local community members to successfully build, maintain and monitor each project.

EWB-USA members are in remote corners of the world right now working hard to make EWB-USA’s vision a reality. As a result of EWB-USA’s ongoing projects, children can cross sturdy bridges to attend school, local clinics have consistent supplies of electricity, and accessing clean water isn’t a full-day chore for families.

EWB-USA’s vision is ambitious but achievable and everyone has an important role to play--including you. Every contribution to their cause helps EWB-USA engineer a better world. Visit www.ewb-usa.org to learn more and get involved.
