EWB-Maties, affiliated with Engineers Without Borders South Africa, is a non-profit humanitarian society which harnesses the power of engineering and diverse perspectives to build and empower local communities.
We believe that change starts with the youth of today – YOU.
Be a part of a dynamic team where brainstorming meets practical implementation. Identify problems in the surrounding communities and collaborate with others to find sustainable solutions. Not only will you have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many people, but you will also undertake a journey of self-discovery and development. Some interesting projects you could look forward to this year include:
- Kennel renovations at AWSS
- Hour of code with high school students from Kayamandi
- Speed mentoring with industry professionals
- Human Centered Design (HCD) collaboration event
- Smaller projects such as socials and community clean-ups
IMPORTANT NOTICE: You do not have to be an engineering student to be a part of the society. We value diversity and inclusion of students from all backgrounds.
