Black & Veatch helps Engineers Without Borders UK growth

Black & Veatch has teamed up with Engineers Without Borders (EWB) UK to help lay the groundwork for opening up involvement to companies across the UK.

“Black & Veatch professionals have been a crucial part in designing a plan to implement involvement of businesses for EWB-UK,” said EWB-UK chief executive officer Andrew Lamb.

“By incorporating companies’ support with students’ support, we will be able to make an even greater impact with our work.”

Black & Veatch announced yesterday that its Building a World of Difference Foundation has donated more than $70,000 (£43,100) to support EWB programs throughout the world.

“This vital support from Black & Veatch allows our organization to improve the quality of life for those in need of the most basic of services,” said EWB-USA executive director Cathy Leslie.

Black & Veatch has well established involvement with more than 30 EWB chapters across the United States and Black & Veatch professionals volunteering for EWB-USA have supported efforts to bring vital infrastructure to communities worldwide.

The company also has well-established involvement with an EWB-India chapter in Mumbai, which was founded by Black & Veatch professionals. Black & Veatch professionals who volunteer with the chapter strive to empower rural India.

Worldwide, Black & Veatch has donated more than $200,000 (£123,100) to EWB since 2008 and has supported the efforts of more than 200 Black & Veatch professionals who have worked on projects worldwide, including India, Honduras, Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and El Salvador.
