About EWB-Finland


Engineers without Borders Finland is a non-political, non-denominational, non-profit voluntary organization. Its purpose is to advance human development through appropriate and sustainable technology and engineering, and to increase the awareness of its members and the public about important development challenges like education, health, nutrition, housing, communication and the environment, as well as the possibilities of technology in providing solutions to the challenges.


EWB-Finland operates in Finland, Europe and abroad. In Finland and Europe, EWB-Finland focuses on improving sustainable way of living in communities which are affected worst by economic instability, human rights violations, irregular immigration and environmental challenges. In underdeveloped and developing countries, EWB-Finland focuses on solutions for providing basic human needs, improving quality of life and mitigating adverse effects of climate change.


As a young organization, EWB Finland has limited resources to initiate its own projects and activities. Therefore, we are looking for partnerships with other Finnish and international organizations.



We stand for the utilization of appropriate and sustainable engineering technology to improve the lives of disadvantaged communities worldwide. Our activities are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) included in the Agenda 2030, the UN strategy adopted in September 2015.
