Project Managers Without Borders began their relationship with Engineers Without Borders in December 2015 to provide project management services on their ongoing Ecuador Irrigation project.

Project Managers Without Borders volunteers quickly acknowledged the areas of opportunity on the project and began planning and coordinating the logistics of the Engineers Without Borders volunteers. This soon became a partnership between the two organizations where Project Managers Without Borders were also able to analyze and recommend best practices for future projects (templates, project setup tasks, project sustainment activities, etc.).

As a result of Project Managers Without Borders’ involvement, Engineers Without Borders now has repeatable processes for planning project trips, tools and templates to execute projects and examples of impact reports and lessons learned.

"As a non-profit partner of EWB I was very grateful for the assistance provided by PMWB. I was trying to keep everything organized on my own but there were things our project manager helped with that I didn't even think about. They kept us on track and allowed the engineers to focus on engineering and me to coordinate with the community. " - Kellie Thompson
