Greetings! 
  
Engineers for a Sustainable World invites you to volunteer abroad this summer 
on technical development projects in Africa, Asia, and Latin America through 
the ESW Summer Engineering Experience in Development (SEED) Program. 
  
Once again the SEED Program will be sending students and professionals in 
small teams to participate in an intensive engineering volunteer abroad 
program. Students and professionals are encouraged to submit an application 
by January 31, 2008.  
  
Further information is available at the program's official site: 
http://www.eswusa.org/projects/seed.asp 
  
 
Since 2002, the SEED Program has sent students and professionals to partner 
with local NGO's and development agencies to countries with a need for 
engineering expertise. This year, we hope to send more volunteers than ever 
before. The assignments, which last between 10-14 weeks, provide an 
excellent opportunity to gain practical engineering experience, learn new 
cultures, travel internationally, and be of service to communities in need.  
Volunteers will also learn how to apply sustainability principles to their work 
throughout the rest of their careers. 
  
The assignments cover a variety of engineering fields and extend across the 
globe.  Volunteers will work in small teams and may be working on water 
infrastructure, renewable energy, food processing, or information and 
communication technology.  Previous field sites have included Honduras, 
Mexico, Nicaragua, Uganda, Senegal, and India. 
  
Voluteers interested in learning more about this opportunity are encouraged to 
visit the Engineers for a Sustainable World website at:

We hope that you'll considering joining ESW this summer to build a more 
sustainable world! 
  
Be sure to apply by January 31, 2008!
