Providing access to the essential services and infrastructure everyone needs to live a life of opportunity, free from poverty.

Our Field Professional Placements build sector-wide capacity through long-term relationships, knowledge sharing and education. Currently, our Field Professionals work in Cambodia, Vanuatu and Timor-Leste supporting locally-led humanitarian engineering initatives that empower communities to tackle issues such as access to clean water, renewable energy, and appropriate sanitation and housing.

We support our community partners through:

  • Long term volunteer placements for emerging and experienced professionals
  • Professional development opportunities
  • Exploring innovative, appropriate and sustainable technologies to trial and upscale to address the root cause of disadvantage in the fields of water, sanitation, housing, energy and education.


EWB’s International Program currently includes capacity building placements with partner organisations and the facilitation of four projects focused on Professional Skills Development, Sanitation in Challenging Environments, Inclusive Design and Accessibility and Renewable Energy. We currently work in three countries - Cambodia, Vanuatu and Timor-Leste.
