EWB-ISU History

The Engineers Without Borders studentchapter at Iowa State University was established in 2008 and consists of around 80 student volunteers helping make the world a better place. In 2013, our chapter was paired with Ullo, a community in Northern Ghana. Since then, we have sent travel teams to Ullo for a couple weeksduring the summer and winter breaks to assess the communities needs, monitor current projects, and implement new projects. Ultimately, we concluded that a water distribution system for the boarding high school was the best option. In addition to monitoring the new system, we have started new projects including cookstoves, a clinic project, the shea-nut project, and an agriculture and irrigation project. More information about these projects can be found under the projects section of the website.
