Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB USA) is a national organization that seeks to build a better world through engineering projects that empower communities to meet their basic human needs and equip leaders to solve the world’s most pressing challenges.
The EWB USA – Hope College Chapter started a new partnership with a children’s school in Teodomiro, Ecuador, in 2021 after successfully closing their partnership with a community in Bondo, Kenya, where drilled wells and a rainwater catchment system were installed. The partnership with Teodomiro focuses on building an enclosure around the local school and developing a clean water source for students at the school. Through an alliance with a local organization, New Horizons, EWB USA – Hope College is planning to conduct a remote assessment trip in November 2021.
This project presents new opportunities for applying engineering, business, communication and project management skills, all in a philanthropic context. The chapter intends to travel to the community annually to create an atmosphere for community partnership, immersive learning for students and the best project outcomes possible.
EWB USA – Hope College Chapter is seeking donors to support our efforts, as well as mentors in the engineering field to assist with future projects. Learn how you can get involved!
