Welcome to the WWU-EWB website!


We are a non-profit humanitarian organization, composed of students from Western Washington University, professional mentors and professors at Western Washington University working with Candelaria Camposanto, a small Mayan community in Guatemala in order to aid them in improving their lives. Our current project (the Guatemalan Sustainability Project) is three phases:

1. Designing and building a water distribution system to each house

2. Constructing pilas (wash basins) at each house with storage containers

3. Designing and implementing a grey water filtration system

The student chapter of Engineers Without Borders at Western Washington University was formed in 2007. The organization composes itself of students of all majors and interests.
