Engineering Good supports the work of local community-based organisations working in areas of humanitarian engineering and appropriate technology, by facilitating and supporting their technical development through capacity building projects. We provide this support through regular short trips that contribute to larger, longer-term partnerships and project objectives. Our volunteers provide relevant engineering support and technical capacity building to our partner on a specific program or project. These projects offer the volunteers the opportunity to work hands-on in the field, gain better understanding of social, economic and cultural contexts in bringing technology to people and communities, and insights into delivering engineering aid that is appropriate and sustainable.
Engineering Good partnered with the Youth Corps Singapore to bring light to Koh Phdao, Kratie province, Cambodia through the provision of solar home systems, in partnership with the Cambodian Rural Development Team, and improve access to clean water in Sre Chea commune, Kampot province, Cambodia, through the provision of rainwater harvesting systems and WASH education, in partnership with Rainwater Cambodia.
We are collaborating with Little Heroes’ Dreams to provide civil engineering and architectural support on a project in Bohol, the Philippines. Working in an area that was struck by the 2013 earthquake, we are leading the sustainable design of a children's home, school, and commercial facilities, with the aim of diversifying income sources for the children’s home.
Together with the Cambodian Rural Development Team, we are embarking on a pilot project to provide innovative technology for small scale irrigation for communities along the Mekong River in Cambodia.
