Engineers Without Borders (EWB) USA takes on sustainable engineering projects that help communities live healthy, productive lives. The EWB-USA Florida Professional Chapter is wrapping up work in Honduras' Nahuaterique Region, where the chapter partnered with an NGO to deliver drinking water to two villages. I volunteered to write a story for EWB-USA's blog to show how both the villages and volunteers benefited, and to encourage new volunteer recruits.
Powered by volunteer engineers and professionals, each EWB-USA project takes about five years to plan, design, build and turnover. Projects are built in partnership with the communities they serve, and members of the community learn how to operate and maintain the projects before EWB-USA closes out the engagement. EWB-USA has worked in 46 countries on 5 continents to find engineering solutions for potable water supplies, sanitation, bridge crossings, sustainable food sources and other critical services.
