Engineers Without Borders

EWB stands for Engineers Without Borders. EWB-USA is a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to partnering with developing communities around the world. We provide engineering services through our volunteer chapter members to implement the infrastructure necessary to meet basic human needs. Through our sustainable engineering projects, we strive to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. Thousands of members in more than 225 universities and professional chapters work to support these efforts. 

 

OUR MISSION

The purpose of our club is to support community driven programs worldwide with collaboration of local partners to design and implement sustainable engineering projects.

OUR PARTNERS

We work on the same projects as the Washington DC Professional Chapter.  We support the Panama project by fundraising, participating in the design process, and running workshops on construction techniques and solar power.
We are also working with the student chapters at Howard University and Catholic University.

STEM AWARENESS

A crucial part of expanding our technology-heavy society is to get more people interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). We present scientific demonstrations to people of any ages, especially children, to get them informed and interested in STEM careers and occupations. If you would like us to present a demonstration at an event, please write to us in the Contact Us tab, and we will get back to you!

 

 

Projects
Panama Project
PANAMA
Hato Rincón is a mountain community located in the Comarca (legal territory) of the Ngöbe-Buglé, the original people of Western Panama (population 110,080). The 316 residents of Hato Rincón are primarily subsistence farmers and artisans. This region of Panama has been historically marginalized by the Panamanian Government and receives very few public services. The primary needs of this community include access to educational opportunities through computers and the internet, access to electricity, improved healthcare services, and better housing. EWB-DC has partnered with the people of Hato Rincón to address these community needs in an initiative called CREER (Centro de Recursos Educativos en Rincon). 
El Salvador Project
EL SALVADOR
The people of Santa Clara suffer many hardships, as the majority live in suboptimal conditions without adequate housing, education, or an improved water source and the community’s residents are burdened with a high incidence of water-related illness. This project will have a comprehensive approach to preventing illness by improving water supply and key hygiene behaviors, especially ensuring safe household drinking water and food, proper personal and domestic hygiene, and effective use of sanitation.
