About Us

Engineers Without Borders Australia (EWB) is a member-based, community organisation that creates social value through engineering. We have been engineering people out of poverty for over 13 years.

Our vision

Everyone has access to the engineering knowledge and resources required to lead a life of opportunity, free from poverty.

Our Mission 

We connect, educate and empower people through humanitarian engineering.

Humanitarian engineering uses a people centered, strength based approach to improve community health, well being and opportunity.

Our values

We build relationships based on mutual trust and respect and believe all relationships thrive on a two way sharing of knowledge and culture.
