Engineers Without Borders Year End Campaign

Engineers Without Borders (EWB) at Penn State is looking for help in their year end campaign. During this campaign, the organization is looking to spread the word about what they are specifically doing within the community as well as raising funds for their projects. From now until Jan. 13, any money donated to the organization will be matched 100% by corporate sponsors and they have a goal of raising $10,000. For every dollar you give it becomes two.

If you are able, please consider donating towards this cause. Here is how you can help:

  • Donate today — whether $5 or $500, you’re changing someone’s life
  • Spread the word on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn
  • Feeling inspired? Create your own fundraising page!
  • Visit ewb-usa.org to learn more about how you can get involved

Internationally, EWB is wrapping up the Latrine projected which they had implemented in Baoma, Sierra Leone over the summer. Now they are focusing on clean water supply and sanitation for the same community. They are working on developing slow sand filter and storage tanks which will meet the community’s needs. EWB is searching for a second international community to partner with.

Locally, the organization is continuing their work at the Discovery Space museum as well as hosting a blood drive and exhibits to promote engineering education.

EWB has begun to receive recognition around Penn State through the Faces of Penn State campaign, among others. More information about what they do can be found on their website,  http://www.engr.psu.edu/ewb/, and through these youtube videos:
