Natasha - Engineers Without Borders Humanitarian Design Summit Nepal

Bachelor of Engineering
February 2017

My experience

The EWB Humanitarian Design Summit proved to be such a rewarding and humbling experience where I learnt so much about humanitarian engineering, sustainable development and appropriate technology. The connections I made with both students from the trip, facilitators and the local Nepalese would be some I would never forget. Culturally, Nepal is very different to Australia so trying to adapt to a completely different lifestyle was a wonderful and challenging experience. We stayed with a family in a rural farming village in the mountains and I will always look back at how welcoming our host family was and all the laughs we shared. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who is interested!
