Engineers Without Borders

Engineers without Borders-UC Chapter poses for a picture in Tanzania with locals. They are all helping to hold the Engineers without Borders sign.

The University of Cincinnati student chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB-UC) is part of the EWB-USA nonprofit humanitarian organization that supports community-driven development programs worldwide, through partnerships that design and implement sustainable engineering projects. EWB-USA's vision is a world in which the communities they serve have the capacity to sustainably meet their basic human needs. Today, more than two billion people lack access to the most basic necessities - clean drinking water, adequate sanitation, reliable passage to local markets and more. EWB-USA's projects create transformative experiences that enrich global perspectives and promote responsible leaders.

EWB-UC recently won Penetron International's Fall 2017 EWB-USA Grant Award Contest. EWB-UC used their grant to provide year-round access to safe & clean drinking water in Burere, Tanzania- impacting 6,000 people.
