Hello and Happy New Year!

Engineers Without Borders-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.

The EWB-USA Student Chapter at Montgomery College was established in 2009 by our students and has been very active ever since. Currently we are working with the DC Professional Chapter to build a community/library/ computer center in an indigenous village in rural Panama. The project is completely driven by the community. They submitted the proposal, will be doing the work, and contributing a (small) proportion of the cost. We will be going on an assessment trip in March and need to prepare. We are looking for information on language, culture, food, geography, building methods, etc. If you would like to contribute, please write to ewb.mcr@gmail.com.

One of the biggest contributions that MC has done is make connections of people with content knowledge to the EWB chapters. Our students get the benefit of this information transfer as well as working on these projects.

Please visit the links below to see what EWB-USA does locally, nationally, and around the world.

Thank you!
