  • Engineers Without Borders

    The 12,000 plus members of Engineers Without Borders have worked on more than 300 projects in over 45 developing countries. Their mission is to "help create a more stable and prosperous world by addressing people's basic human needs by providing necessities such as clean water, power, sanitation and education."

    EWB takes on projects that are proposed by a community. It's a grassroots approach that ensures projects are needed by a community and have commitment from community members.

    Engineers Bring Better Health to Rural Communities describes a project they took on recently in Honduras to bring clean water to a rural village. Their website describes many more projects.

    If you are an engineer, you can get involved with their projects. If you are not, you can donate to help fund projects.
