October 17th-19th will be the 6th Annual 36-hour, “We Fast So They Can Drink” Fund-raiser for Engineers in Action. By sponsoring one of our Fasters for $1/hr ($36) you will help us pay for the salary of a Bolivian engineer for one day. For $5/hr ($180) you will cover their salary for a week.
EIA funds indigenous, local engineers living and working in Bolivia, the poorest country in South America. We build partnerships between indigenous communities in desperate need for the basics of clean water, sanitation and irrigation and those engineering and donor organizations in the U.S. who want to help.
Because we build partnerships with these organizations, we’ve discovered that every dollar given to EIA turns into $2-$3 in developmental aid for these communities. We partner with U.S. engineering universities, Engineers Without Borders chapters, Rotary Clubs in the US, Canada and Bolivia, and a variety of governmental and non-governmental organizations.
