Water is life. For most of us, water seems cheap and plentiful and we take it for granted. Yet, every day, billions of less fortunate people living on the fringes are forced to drink from contaminated sources and to spend an inordinate amount of time trying to gather water for their families and livestock.
Engineers in Action (EIA) is dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of vulnerable communities in Latin America. We work in partnership with local communities to increase access to water and infrastructure, building their capacity and resilience. This helps ensure the long term sustainability of the new systems.
Our mission is to support the development of sustainable systems and infrastructure with underserved communities, local expertise, and global partners.
Our vision is that EIA will become a holistic organization of caring professionals working to build local capacity and a sense of dignity and hope in communities all over the world.
Fundación Ingenieros en Accion (FIEA) will aim to propose and implement programs and targeted operations for economic and social inclusion, with emphasis on priority groups (children, teenagers, young adults, seniors, people with disabilities ) and the population that is in a situation of poverty and vulnerability, promoting development and care during the life cycle, ascending social mobility and strengthening the popular and solidarity economy.
