Development partners are at the core of our work. These are the community-based organisations that work close to the ground, directly with disadvantaged and marginalised communities, to address key concerns such as poverty alleviation, access to resources and opportunities, and community development. EWB-Asia supports our development partners through volunteer engineers, who contribute their skills while gaining invaluable experience in humanitarian engineering and development work.
