Engineers Without Borders

Our main partner is Engineers Without Borders, a renowned non-governmental organisation that has bases in several countries around the world. EWB was the initiator of the continuation of this project. It is an important partner for us because the weight of its name can give benefits when pitching our project to potential new partners and its communication channels can be used for awareness creation. We create value for EWB because our projects fits in their mission, which is ‘to partner with disadvantaged communities to improve their quality of life through education and implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while promoting global experience for engineers, engineering students, and similarly motivated non-engineers’ (‘Who We Are’, 2015)
Jan Kluiver is a member of EWB and he plays a major role in the project. He provided a contact person in Morocco, taught us about the technical aspects of the product and built the first prototypes as the inventor of the current design of the Fortune Cooker. The project in Morocco benefits him because of the research we will conduct to develop the product. Jan has the aim to eventually have a finished end product that can be successfully implemented. We can contribute to his aim with our TU Delft taught experience in user centred design, product development, and marketing.
