The greatest benefit of EWB is that it helps those who really need the help while training a new generation of engineers.

EWB has professional chapters in most major cities and student chapters on most university campuses. If you can volunteer some time, it is easy to get involved and support a good cause.

This sounds like a great program! Engineers helping others to use and benefit from existing technology, just goes to show the best side of engineering. Keep up the good work. I am going to check out the website for more information. It reminded me of an outreach program I heard about at Daniel Webster College (Nashua NH). There is a group of professors, students and interested engineers working on assisting communities in Africa (clean water, well drilling, etc.).
