It is the objective of the Engineers Without Borders Northern New Jersey Professionals Chapter (EWB-NNJ) to implement sustainable development projects in communities around the world with the purpose of improving the standard of living and to empower communities. Community development projects involve environmentally and economically sustainable engineering projects.
Most recently, this was highlighted in our succes in the Nyanza District of Kenya with a water pump to the village of Kenya. To read more about our efforts in the town of Kipingi - please visit our blog at http://kipingiwater.blogspot.com/
In addition to working on the design and implementation of development projects, EWB-NNJ members serve as mentors for local student chapters to ensure technical integrity and foster social responsibility and global awareness. Currently our group acts as a mentor to Engineers Without Borders Student Chapters at Columbia, Stevens and Rutgers University.
Our members are committed to the Engineers Without Borders vision of a world in which all communities have the capacity to meet their basic human needs.
