EWB NL volunteering projects

The volunteers of Engineers without Borders NL work on projects that improve improve well-being with technology in developing countries.

Example projects are drinking water systems, sustainable off-grid energy, development of smart apps or low-tech tools , and the build and operation of small factories and enterprises. By participating in these projects, our volunteers (mainly engineers) develop non-technical skills such as dealing with cultural differences, creating social impact, understanding institutional models, and entrepreneurship, which they can also apply in their professional work.
