THERE are a wealth of ini­tia­tives in un­der­served com­mu­ni­ties across the world fo­cused on in­creas­ing ac­cess to food, clean wa­ter, ef­fec­tive san­i­ta­tion, en­ergy, hous­ing and other ba­sic needs. But of­ten, tech­nolo­gies in­tended for these com­mu­ni­ties fail to reach them due to lack of com­mu­ni­ca­tion and ac­cess to in­forma- tion. As a re­sult, there is a grow­ing need for a cen­tralised col­lab­o­ra­tion hub where knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence can be cap­tured, shared and lever­aged.

En­gi­neer­ing for Change is one such hub. It en­ables a grow­ing com­mu­nity of en­gi­neers, tech­nol­o­gists, so­cial sci­en­tists and NGOs to ap­ply and share ap­pro­pri­ate and sus­tain­able tech­ni­cal so­lu­tions to achieve trans­for­ma­tional re­sults.
