Engineers Without Borders™ - USA
Engineers Without Borders-USA (EWB-USA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 2000 to help developing areas worldwide with their engineering needs, while involving and training a new kind of internationally responsible engineer. EWB-USA projects involve the design and construction of sustainable water, waste-water, sanitation, energy, and shelter systems. These projects, initiated by the host community, are jointly designed between the EWB-USA chapters with input from the community. EWB trains the community members to operate the installed systems ensuring that its projects are appropriate and self-sustaining.
