Engineers Without Borders Australia works with disadvantaged communities to improve their quality of life through education and the implementation of
sustainable engineering programs.
Through the process of helping people in need we become more socially aware and responsible, improve ourselves, inspire others to action and further our ultimate goal of sustainable development.
