Year-End Campaign

YearEnd Campaign

The CHICAGOLAND PROFESSIONAL CHAPTER (CPC), founded in 2005, is one of the largest Engineers Without Borders (EWB) chapters in the United States with five active programs in four countries around the world (Honduras, Guatemala, Burkino Faso, and Kenya); each program requiring a minimum 5 year commitment with a community.  In our nine year history we have completed four programs (in Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala) and adopted six additional communities, directly impacting approximately 17,000 people and indirectly affecting over 36,000 in the communities’ surrounding areas.  Our projects include: building community wells, flood mitigation, constructing pedestrian and vehicle bridges, energy management systems, sanitation and latrine systems, water storage and distribution systems and other infrastructure needs that the communities identify.
