Engineers Without Borders (EWB-USA) (https://www.ewb-usa.org/) is a non-profit humanitarian organization where chapters from across the US (student chapter affiliated with universities and professional chapters affiliated geographically) partner with communities around the world to work on community-driven sustainable development infrastructure projects. Some examples include clean water distribution, composting latrines, and foot bridges. The organization was founded in 2000 out of CU Boulder. Traditionally EWB-USA projects are international partnerships with communities with a minimum 5-year commitment, where chapters and communities go through the project process of assessment, design, implementation, and monitoring together. Typically communities will hear about EWB-USA through word-of-mouth, and then submit an application to be considered for a chapter to adopt. The New York Professional Chapter (https://ewbny.org/), made up of professional engineers of all disciplines located throughout the NY metropolitan area, as well as NY student chapters, have successfully designed and completed, and are currently working on, international projects in communities in Africa and South America.
