Improving quality of life through sustainable projects

We are a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities worldwide.


We work to enable sustainable development, both through awareness locally and implementation globally. Our vision is a world in which the communities we serve have the capacity to sustainably meet their basic human needs, and that our members have enriched global perspectives through the innovative professional educational opportunities that the EWB-USA program provides. Education is a fundamental right that opens up opportunities for individuals and societies to thrive. Professionals state in their works that access to quality education provides individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to pursue their goals and contribute to their communities. With over 100 active members in our chapter, students have the opportunity to participate in various development projects in Guatemala, Cameroon, and the Philadelphia communities through our International and Local committees.
