Engineers Without Borders

Transforming communities through humanitarian engineering



We're proud to partner with Engineers Without Borders New Zealand and support humanitarian engineering.

Our partnership with Engineers Without Borders came about as we both believe in making lives better for our communities, now and in the future. Thanks to a group of passionate advocates for humanitarianism and sustainability from our team, we were able to make this partnership a reality.

Our decade-old relationship has taken many shapes since its inception. We’ve provided everything from pro-bono expertise and advice for projects to help build more resilient communities, to actively being involved in school visits to talk to students about human-centred infrastructure and engineering, right through to sponsoring EWBNZ’s annual conferences.

Our current partnership is in place through to 2021. Together we aim to make everyday better for our communities by connecting, educating and empowering people through humanitarian engineering.

Engineering is such an important tool in the fight against climate change. For the solutions to be effective, it's crucial for the ideas to come from within, and education is the first step. Watch this space!
