Our Official EWB-USA International Project
Engineers Without Borders is in the beginning stages of a irrigation project in Ethiopia. The community that has reached out to EWB-UConn relies heavily on access to water for agricultural needs.
Our Local Project
EWB-UConn is working with CLiCK (Commercially Licensed Co-operative Kitchen), in Willimantic, CT, on several projects oriented towards long-term sustainability. This project is currently in the application process to become an official EWB-USA local project.
Our Partnership Project
Collaboration with EWB-Muffakham Jah College of Engineering and Technology (MJCET), India
UConn engineering students and Pratt & Whitney -with funding from United Technologies Research Center- are aiding EWB-India in the installation of E-Learning Centers into ten schools in Hyderabad, India. This summer four members will be traveling to help with the implementation.
Our Closed Projects
The UConn chapter of EWB targeted its aid efforts to the impoverished shantytown of La Prusia, Nicaragua, with the aim of improving living conditions for residents through the construction of a permanent road linking La Prusia with the colonial city of Granada.
Engineers Without Borders was given the opportunity to help revitalize the quality of Pope Park in Hartford, CT; specifically the hill adjacent to the soccer field, which has been in decline over the years.
