The Alcoa Foundation announced that EWB-GT was selected alongside four other Engineers Without Borders USA chapters 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.
EWB-GT will utilize its funding to support the Uganda Project. The Uganda Project will use the fund for their upcoming implementation trip in December. We are very excited and grateful for the support from Alcoa Foundation and hope to continue the partnership in the future.
