Our Chapter

Founded in 2007, our chapter spent has spent the last 10 years working in the Hedome Village of Togo, Africa where we built a new school house and dug a desperately-needed deep water well to deliver safe drinking water to thousands of Togolese citizens.

 

The University of Mississippi Engineers Without Borders chapter is a student-led organization, chartered in 2007. Since its founding, our chapter has strived to accomplish one, main goal: to benefit as many people in need as we can through community-driven service projects. For ten years, our primary project has been to aid the people of Togo, Africa. Throughout our time in Togo, we have built a schoolhouse for local kids, and most recently we constructed a clean water well for safe water consumption. We are expanding our horizons and aim to take on a second project later this year in South America, as well as exploring our options for smaller-scale domestic projects. Our chapter is over 100 members large, made up of students from all over the world, of all backgrounds, and in all academic majors and interests. The one thing we all share: the strong desire to help others and improve communities across all borders around the globe!
