EWB-USA is a non-profit organization with over 350 projects in 45 developing countries. The UNH chapter of Engineers Without Borders was started in 2002, the same year that EWB-USA was started. The chapter has already completed three projects and is currently working on two more projects in Uganda and Peru. Programs are required to last at least five years so that community relations can be created and maintained.
EWB-UNH is not just for engineers. In order to be successful, we need a whole team of people with a wide variety of skills. We are looking for strong writers to compose press releases, grant writing, and EWB paperwork. We need graphic designers to create posters, and flyers. We are also looking for people who are interested in education to help design plans to teach the communities, and people who are curious about finances and fundraising. You don’t have to be an engineer to help change a community with EWB-UNH.
Our mission is to encourage, support, and implement environmentally and economically sustainable technical projects in local and international communities, while developing globally responsible and knowledgeable students.
