Engineers Without Borders USA Lehigh Valley Professional Chapter builds a better world through engineering projects that empower communities to meet their basic human needs. Our projects have been based in Mattru Jong, Sierra Leone and in the Dominican Republic where we have a water project on-going.
Since 2010, the EWB-USA Lehigh Valley Professional Chapter has built a relationship with the community of Mattru Jong. Our first project at the CSS Secondary School was followed by the renovation of the Mattru Jong Hospital. With work finishing up at the hospital, the project team has already begun planning for the next project which will be the SLOIC vocational school in Mattru. Click the links below for each project:
The rural Dominican Republic communities of Machete and Cabeza de Toro need clean water, sanitation, electricity and road improvements to stop emigration of younger people and improve the lives of current residents. These facilities would give the towns the resources they need to thrive in the Dominican economy. A clean water supply system will be the first project implemented in our 5-year program.
