Students set sights on next overseas aid project

Thursday, June 15, 2017

A group of six Waterloo Engineering students is building on a successful aid project in Bangladesh by launching a not-for-profit organization to make even more of a difference in the developing world.

Engineers For Hope began two years ago as a student design team made up of civil engineering classmates Adnan Abu Atiya, Tariq Hasan, Rumman Rahman, Shihab Saadeldeen, Nirbhay Singh and Youssef Zaki.

Team members used their Waterloo connections and personal knowledge of developing countries to raise enough money to build eight wells and eight sanitary toilets last fall in a rural village in Bangladesh.

Now based at the Accelerator Centre, the group is making plans for a follow-up project involving clean water, sanitation and education in rural India.
