From 2002 to 2019, we provided over 205,400 hours of pro-bono engineering to our partners’ projects around the world. Together we achieved a lot – increasing access to clean water, improved sanitation facilities, reliable energy resources and resilient built environments. You can find out more about some of these projects below.
We are proud of the impact our international placements had and they remain an important part of our history and the journey we went on to evolve into the movement we are today. But the number of people they’ve helped either directly, or indirectly, is relatively small compared to the size of the global challenges we face. We took time to assess our work and realised that we can positively affect many more lives by using our influence and educational programmes to encourage change on a much larger and strategic scale. As such our focus has moved from running individual pro-bono projects to creating systemic change.
