Help us recognise an incredible volunteer
Engineers Without Borders UK could not operate without the incredible contributions of our fantastic team of dedicated volunteers. This year, thanks to a generous donation from The Halcrow Trust, we will be awarding a prize to a volunteer who has made an outstanding contribution to the Engineers Without Borders movement. You can make your nomination here.
We've got new faces on the team
In April we welcomed Anya Boyd as our Head of International Partnerships and Eve Gyimah as our Head of Fundraising and Communications. Anya joined us from the Energy Research Centre in Cape Town and has previous experience with the AECOM Sustainable Development Group and Practical Action. Eve has most recently been working with The Alzheimers Society and previously worked with The Prince's Trust, Restless Development and Cambridge House.
In June Annabel Fleming joined the team as International Partnerships Officer. She recently returned from Nepal, where she was a team leader for VSO and has also worked in the Public Sector Reform Office in Sierra Leone. We are delighted to have them all on board.
Join us this September at United for Change
Join us for our annual event as we bring together our student and professional members. Formerly known as the National Volunteer Training Weekend, this event aims to unite the Engineers Without Borders UK community to inspire change and ensure that engineering is at the heart of development.
You’ll hear from fantastic keynote speakers, participate in workshops and get to know other supporters and members from across the UK. United for Change is open to everyone. We hope to bring together our branches, members and supporters as well as those who are keen to learn more about our work and the role of engineering in development.
Tickets are available here to purchase along with further information. We hope you can make it, this is not to be missed!
