Happy Anniversary to all our members worldwide! Engineers without Borders International (EWB-I) is celebrating 15 successful years of building and evolving engineering capacity throughout the world, and achieving sustainable development for the benefit of people everywhere. Thousands of implemented projects, relating to water and sanitation, waste, energy, education, and agriculture justify our crucial role in the improvement of the quality of life in many disadvantaged communities.
After a fruitful 15 years of dedicated work, EWB-I still has much space for improvement: the update of the vision and values of the EWB-I network (movement) is in the final phase; a dedicated platform for EWB-I Member Associations (MAs) for sharing information is being created; the clarity of the processes and procedures of EWB-I and the Executive Committee will be defined by the end of the year. The new EWB-I Board is ready and eagerly facing the upcoming challenges.
EWB-I is increasing its role and reputation as a responsible partner to many global funding institutions that recognize the huge potential and the capacity of the network. The awarded grants to several EWB MAs confirmed the trust that donors like Arconic and Tetra Tech have in EWB-I.
At the end of another amazing year – may the coming year bring you every success and happiness. I wish you all a Happy New Year 2018!
