About Engineers Without Borders UNM
Engineers Without Borders UNM is a chapter of the parent organization EWB-USA and we share their mission and goals.
Engineers Without Borders USA builds a better world through engineering projects that empower communities to meet their basic human needs and equip leaders to solve the world’s most pressing challenges.
EWB-USA’s vision is a world in which every community has the capacity to sustainably meet their basic human needs.
Engineers Without Borders - USA (EWB-USA) is a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities worldwide in order to improve their quality of life. This partnership involves the implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while involving and training internationally responsible engineers and engineering students.
The activities of EWB-USA are completely funded by the generous donations of our members and sponsors along with the fundraising efforts of our chapters. Each student and professional chapter is responsible for the funding of their project. On site contributions of materials and labor by community members are an integral part of the project process.
Here at the University of New Mexico, EWB is giving students and faculty great opportunities to volunteer in bettering the underprivileged community.
