Engineers without Borders (EWB)
Our vision is a world in which the communities we serve have the capacity to sustainably meet their basic human needs, and that our members have enriched global perspectives through the innovative professional educational opportunities that the EWB-USA supports community-driven development programs worldwide by collaborating with local partners to design and implement sustainable engineering projects, while creating transformative experiences and responsible leaders. Immediate goals for the upcoming year include: the development and cultivation of relationships with industry professionals through our annual Networking Benefit (Spring 2015); the successful implementation of our Tile Press in a small community in Rwanda (Summer 2015); and the birth of a new project, most likely in Jordan (2015-16).
