We're a proud partner of Engineers Without Borders. Together we aim to connect, educate and empower people through humanitarian engineering.
Humanitarian engineering uses a people-centered, strength-based approach to improve community health, wellbeing and opportunity.
Our involvement with Engineers Without Borders New Zealand (EWBNZ) dates back to the beginning of 2009, with strong ties forged through a number of our team who are passionate advocates for volunteering and contributing to social development and working as volunteers.
Our current partnership, through to 2021, includes sponsorship of EWBNZ’s annual conference and dedicated pro-bono time to support its engineering activities.
To date, we’ve provided pro-bono expertise to projects including design, drafting and verification for a rainwater harvesting structure in North East Ambrym, project screening and advice for a cyclone community safe-house in Vanuatu, and guidance and support to EWBNZ’s In-Schools programme, which teaches students about international development and engineering.
