Scientist and Engineers without Boarder BIUST (SEWBB)
Scientist and Engineers without Boarder BIUST (SEWBB) is non-political and non-profit making organization under STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) run by students and recent graduates of Botswana International University of Science and Technology (BIUST) who are interested in tackling world issues, leadership and management. The organization was established on 25th January 2015 and has since been growing in terms of membership, diversity, networking as well as establishing itself with the community.The SEWBB initiative aims to mobilize and coordinate science-based and capacity-building efforts in the developing world. Its founders and partners believe that the scientific and engineering community has tremendous potential for promoting global health, agricultural progress, environmental well-being, energy needs, technology and other crucial advances. Motivation to create such a body has intensified with the growing realization that integrated rather than narrow approaches are crucial for addressing key challenges such as extreme poverty, glaring health problems that accompany poor sanitation as well as lack of access to basic commodities such as water, power supply and proper housing facilities. The essence of SEWBB is to improve the quality of life in underdeveloped areas using practical, sustainable science and engineering skills while cultivating a sense of social responsibility in Science and engineering students. Through this club, students can put their practical abilities into good use to benefit them and the community.
