About our Chapter

Engineers Without Borders - USA San Francisco Professionals (EWB-SFP) was established in September 2004 as the first professional chapter of EWB-USA. Our mission supports community-driven development programs worldwide through the design and implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while fostering responsible leadership.

We currently work with communities in Fiji, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Kenya, and Tanzania to deliver necessities such as clean water, clean energy, and sustainable agriculture. EWB-SFP also works at the local level, developing simple engineering solutions with the Appropriate Technology Design Team (ATDT) to be implemented in the field.

We have nearly 200 members and an even larger (3000+) Bay Area network. Our EWB-SFP community believes in our mission and work to:

  • Build capacity in developing communities through appropriate engineering solutions
  • Fundraise to provide equipment and supplies required for implementing our projects
  • Mentor Bay Area University chapters through project partnerships
