You have probably heard about Doctors Without Borders but did you know that there is an Engineers Without Borders, too?  This national organization does exactly what its name suggests: reaches out to help lift up communities that cannot do it themselves. It is through this national organization that the University of Iowa Chapter of Engineers Without Borders has made a long-lasting, positive impact halfway across the globe.

 

Over the past few years UI engineering students have been working in Ghana, a country in Western Africa, to provide clean drinking water and sanitation. The students also provide the communities they serve with the knowledge they need to manage and maintain these systems for years to come.
