Engineers Without Borders Austria is a non-profit association which has set itself the task of implementing projects in the field of technical development cooperation. The members and contributors are of different age groups and fields of study/professions. Everyone works on a voluntary basis. Since 2015 there is a regional group in the Tyrol with currently about 40 members, among them architects, civil engineers, physicists, psychologists, linguists and many more. The regional group is currently working on the “EduZapa” project, which aims to rehabilitate a school in rural, poverty-stricken Mexico. The first implementation phase took place in the summer of 2017, with a further phase being planned for 2018. This project is financed exclusively by donations.
ILF supported the association with a donation at the end of 2017 and now intends to work more closely together. In particular, ILF plans to contribute to the technical project and design by making in-house expertise available to the project team.
