Every year, 526,000 million children die from diarrhea due to inadequate sanitation and a lack of clean water. In Tanzania, only 52% of the population has access to an improved water supply. 632 million people live without electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa. In Fiji, less than half the population has access to safe, reliable drinking water.
In these and other situations around the globe, the men and women of the San Francisco Professional Chapter of Engineers Without Borders are working to affect change. EWB-USA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to designing and implementing sustainable engineering projects worldwide, while creating transformative experience and responsible leaders. Our vision is a world in which all communities have the capacity to meet their basic human needs. These are the organizations helping us achieve that vision.
