The first Engineers Without Borders organisation was established in France in 1982, followed in the 1990s by entirely separate organisations in Spain and Italy. This was followed by rapid expansion and there are now more than 60 Engineers Without Borders organisations around the world. All Engineers Without Borders organisations are independent of each other and operate in different ways, but they are united by a common belief that engineering should be about solving problems for people.
EWB International is an international federation of national Engineers Without Borders organisations. EWB-International is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation with a mission to facilitate networking, collaboration, exchange of information and assistance among its Member Associations and aid in the development of their capacity to assist developing communities.
EWB-International creates relationships amongst like-minded organizations, regardless of political, economic, religious or other boundaries. The EWB-International website has links to EWB organisations in many countries around the world, please visit their website to find out if there is an EWB already working in your area.
EWBNZ and EWB Australia have maintained strong links over the years share information and programmes. We're pretty proud to be able to count them as good mates.
