Program areas at Engineers Without Borders USA

EWB-USA programs are full partnerships with a host community and one or more local nongovernmental organizations. EWB-USA's 13,800 members work alongside local community members to design and build each project, while equipping them to operate and maintain the project for years to come. EWB-USA members are in remote corners of the world working hard to make EWB-USA's vision a reality. As a result of EWB-USA's ongoing projects, children can cross sturdy bridges to attend school, local clinics have consistent supplies of electricity, and accessing clean water isn't a full-day chore for families. In 2018, student chapters received 43,200 donated professional mentor hours on projects. The value of these in-kind services is included in the 2018 audited financial statements in the amount of $4,320,000 but it is not included in Part IX of the Form 990.

In 2018, EWB-USA finished construction and wrapped up other project deliverables, such as designs and studies, benefiting 3.2 million people. More than 13,800 members experienced the benefits of access to vetted project and service opportunities, coaching and guidance from humanitarian engineering experts, and the resources to enhance their technical and interpersonal skills. Service learning trips provided 1,330 volunteers with the opportunity to enhance their technical and social skills through in-community projects execution. Regional and national conferences provided 600 attendees insight on best practices in sustainable development and opportunities to network with leaders in the engineering and development industries. In 2018, we broadened our reach and impact by implementing long-term strategies for Nicaragua and Guatemala as well as opening a new office in Uganda. We increased our education opportunities by having 7,784 courses taken. We increased our financial stability by adding more than $878,000 to our net assets.
