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. Our 14,700 members work with communities to find appropriate solutions for water supply, sanitation, energy, agriculture, civil works, structures and information systems.
FROM THE INITIAL BLUEPRINT TO THE BOOTS-ON-THE-GROUND WORK, EWB-USA MEMBERS HAVE IMPACTED MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION LIVES.
Today, more than two billion people lack access to the most basic things, such as clean drinking water, adequate sanitation, reliable passage to local markets and more. Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB-USA) is engineering change in 39 countries around the world to change this reality — one well at a time, one bridge at a time, one community at a time.
Our mission: 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 creating transformative experiences that enrich global perspectives and create responsible leaders.
Our vision: EWB-USA’s vision is a world in which the communities we serve have the capacity to sustainably meet their basic human needs.
What We Do:
The hands-on engineering work occurs at the project level. The scope of these projects is diverse, ranging from the construction of a health clinic in Peru to the implementation of household biosand filters in Cameroon.
