Alcoa Foundation Awards $225,000 to Engineers Without Borders Programs

The Alcoa Foundation announced this week that fourteen Engineers Without Borders organizations were selected to receive grant funding as part of the Creation of a Global Engineer Program. The program is designed to create and replicate the best practices of  “learning through service programs” that develop skills in leadership, project management, communication, systems thinking and community and personal engagement.

Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB-USA) was fortunate to be one of the grant funding recipients. The Alcoa grant will directly support EWB-USA projects to improve the water supply and energy systems for approximately 17,000 beneficiaries in Cameroon, El Salvador, Morocco, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
