Global Water/Engineering Brigades (GWB) is a movement of passionate students and professional volunteers from around the world dedicated to improving access to clean water and sanitation. GWB designs and implements water systems to increase access and quantity of water to the communities it services. Our systems also prevent communicable illnesses in communities with limited access to clean water.
Our current projects are in Central America and Ghana, where hundreds of student volunteers travel annually to implement our community-based water projects with our local partners. Our in-country team members work with water experts and community leaders to design large-scale water systems for the entire community. Once the water system is blueprinted, volunteers work side-by-side with community members to implement and provide the education to the youth about clean water. The systems are maintained by a “community water counsel” that the organization creates.
