Engineers Without Borders – Georgia Tech is a chapter of EWB-USA, a large non-profit humanitarian organization. The goal of this organization is to support community-driven development projects worldwide through partnerships that design and implement sustainable engineering projects.
EWB-GT achieves its goals through collaboration between students and communities. To efficiently address issues in a variety of diverse communities around the world, EWB has in place a unique network of collaboration in which students, mentors, NGOs and community members work together to identify and address environmental and health issues.
The International Projects have faced many challenged during the pandemic. Due to Covid-19, all projects have had to undergo remote implementation and monitoring. EWB has also temporarily started to take on domestic projects, so as not to start a project without being able to meet the community in person. These domestic projects will require less people and less time to complete. International travel will begin again once EWB-USA has lifted its travel restrictions.
