Welcome to the MIT chapter of Engineers Without Borders! EWB is a nonprofit organization that partners with communities in developing countries to improve their quality of life. The focus is on implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while getting the community involved. EWB-USA also strives to mentor internationally responsible engineers and matches developing communities to student and professional chapters.
One of EWB-MIT's main goals is to give the members of the MIT community opportunities to gain hands on international development experience! You can take part in our workshops, be a part of one of our project teams [Kenya, Uganda, Malawi], and help a lot of people in the process.
EWB-MIT is not just for engineers. In order to make a project successful, we need a whole team of people, including those interested in writing to help write press releases, graphic design to help us make posters and flyers, education to help us create educational programs for our community and those interested in helping raise the money in order to make our projects successful. You don't have to be an engineer to change the world with EWB-MIT.
