Engineers Without Borders Australia's (EWB) vision is of a world where everyone has access to the engineering knowledge and resources required to lead a life of opportunity, free from poverty.

EWB is a member-based not-for-profit organisation with 10 years experience in creating systemic change through humanitarian engineering. They do this by:

  • Working in partnership to address a lack of access to basic human needs such as clean water, sanitation and hygiene, energy, basic infrastructure, waste systems, information communication technology and engineering education.
  • Educating and training Australian students, engineers and the wider community on issues including sustainable development, appropriate technology, poverty and the power of humanitarian engineering.
  • Leading a movement of like-minded people with strong values and a passion for humanitarian engineering within Australia and overseas.

Mission statement:

EWB connects, educates and empowers people through humanitarian engineering.

Humanitarian engineering uses a people centered, strength based approach to improve community health, well being and opportunity.
