Who We Are
Since our founding in 2004, EWB-Yale has been fortunate to work with communities in Honduras and Cameroon on projects improving water and sanitation systems. A registered undergraduate organization, we have students from a wide variety of academic backgrounds, and extremely dedicated mentors, faculty advisors, alumni and collaborators on both sides of the Atlantic. In 2011, EWB-Yale was honored with a Premier Project reward from EWB-USA. Read the press release here.
Our New Project in Rohvitangitaa (Roh), Cameroon
EWB-Yale adopted the Roh project in 2012 with hopes of improvoing a gravity-fed water distribution system that was originally built in 2006 that will improve access to clean water and reduce the incidence of water-borne illness. A significant portion of this project focuses on health and health education.
