Engineers Without Borders (EWB-USA) community development programs are driven by sustainability and collaboration and are underpinned by a minimum five-year commitment. Our programs originate with a community self-identifying its needs and requesting support from EWB-USA.
EWB-USA is a nonprofit humanitarian organization established to support community-driven development programs worldwide through partnerships that design and implement sustainable engineering projects, while creating transformative experiences that enrich global perspectives and create responsible leaders.
A world in which the communities we serve have the capacity to sustainably meet their basic human needs.
Joyabaj, San Martin, and Pachulum are municipalities near the southeastern corner of the department of Quiche. The terrain — in combination with the economic status of the surrounding communities — has prevented improvements in access to electricity, potable water, school buildings and road infrastructure.
The mission of our program is to provide assistance in developing infrastructure that can help the people of this area improve their health, education and economic opportunities. Our chapter’s first project will be a schoolhouse located in the village of la Cantun II. The FSU-FAMU Chapter will produce designs for a school with two classrooms and a kitchen/office. Toilet and handwashing facilities, along with a septic system, will also be needed. We will also provide assistance during the construction of the schoolhouse.
Engineers without Borders is pleased to announce that it’s currently sponsored by Studypool https://www.studypool.com, a leader in online homework help, and Gregory Poole Equipment Company. Through the help of our sponsors we can move closer to our fundraising goals for our current project. To learn more, go to our Donate link below!
