Engineers Without Borders 10+ Year Anniversary Celebration Apr 29

On April 9th, 2016, EWB hosted Professor Christopher Swan, ScD., P.E., Professor Jennifer Coates, Ph.D., Joshua Das, MPH, Natasha Wright, and Sarah Freeman for our 10+ year anniversary event in Cabot Asean Auditorium. The night focused on clean water projects both domestically and internationally, with each speaker offering their own unique experiences and perspectives. The speeches were interesting, relevant, and enjoyed by all, including the many non-EWB members who attended the event. Fred Berger, one of our largest donors who passed away recently, was honored during Sarah Freeman’s speech where she discussed his impact on her pursuit of a career in international development.

IGL Student speaks on her research and experiences in Ghana by Jhanel Chew

by tuftsigl

When I left the United States, it was 27 degrees outside. There were piles of snow everywhere and I was freezing in my big winter coat and snow boots. By the time I finally got off the plane, the sun had set and the temperature in Ghana had cooled significantly to a low 80 degrees.

Challenges to Clean Water Access in Malawi by Emma Inhorn

by tuftsigl

Today was very eye-opening. We conducted interviews with families about their water. Many people told me, through my translator Joseph, that they have no way of knowing whether their water was clean, but that they have no choice but to drink it, as it is the only water they have.

My Parting Reflections of The Gambia by Whitney Ceesay

by tuftsigl

This visit to The Gambia taught me a lot about opening up to, and even expecting, constant adaptation of plans. I was unable to build the proof of concept food dehydrator that I was trying to build due to the complexity of logistics and the lack of internet to research materials for food safety.
