Raising money

 

DCD Fly-an-Engineer Appeal for Engineers Without Borders
£1406 has been raised at our annual London Conference for EWB-UK in 2012 We also launched an appeal to donate air miles for the EWB-UK, to fund their travels to projects, as this in one of the organisation’s major costs.

EWB-UK

DCD developed the ‘Fly-an-Engineer’ appeal in cooperation with EWB-UK in 2013 to support their efforts with donated air-miles and financial support for their international programmes.This year we were able to help engineering students and graduates with their travelling costs to different community projects where their skills are needed.
We would like to offer similar assistance to the international community of EWB / ISF / ESF * organisations to help them remove barriers to development through engineering, so invited other EWB organisations around the world to join the project as well.
Our objective with this appeal is to help fund the travelling costs for Engineers Without Borders, whose organisations around the world collaborate locally to help implementing sustainable engineering solutions for the community.
