On September 21st, an inspiring gathering took place as six schools united under the banner of the Water Promise School Outreach Program.

This workshop served as a unifying platform, bringing together science teachers from five schools to enhance our collective knowledge and skills. The generous funding provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade New Zealand through the Water Promise Program, alongside the ongoing support of the Engineers Without Borders New Zealand and partnership from the Ministry of Education and Training, has been indispensable in making this event possible. We also commend the EWB Vanuatu Team and the six schools involved for their unwavering commitment to lead the way in our program.

The core focus of the workshop was centered around embracing the principles and mindsets of Human-Centered Engineering, as skillfully presented by Mr. Steve Tarimaemae, the EWBA Technical Program Manager. The workshop placed special emphasis on applying this approach to address the unique challenges faced by each school, fostering collaborative efforts to discover innovative solutions together.

We are eagerly anticipating the forthcoming implementation of basic engineering activities within these schools. Together, we shall continue to make waves in the realm of education and engineering, transforming the lives of students and communities alike.

We are thrilled to share the incredible success of our recent workshop ( 20/09/2023) for 3rd-year students at the School of Education, Vanuatu National University. πŸ“š This workshop was an inspiring journey into the world of Human-Centered Engineering, where innovation and learning came together in harmony. 🌍

The workshop engaged our talented students with the principles of Human-Centered Engineering. The highlight of the workshop was the exciting bridge-building activity, where students applied the Human-Centered Engineering Technical Development Approach guiding principles.

We are immensely proud of the students' enthusiasm and commitment.

A massive thank you to MFAT for making this possible and for the dedicated faculty at the National University of Vanuatu School of Education and all the students who made this workshop a resounding success. πŸ™ Let's continue to innovate, learn, and grow together as we shape the leaders of tomorrow! πŸ’ͺ🌱

Welcome Melinda Obed to the EWB Team.

Last month we Welcome our New staff member Melinda Obed as the new Manaaki Programme Coordinator.

Melinda will be taking lead in the delivery of the programme activities For the Water Promise Project.
This covers three areas: an onboarding process for DoWR to increase new recruits’ hard and soft skills, building an individual’s training tracking tool; a school outreach component working in close consultation with Ministry of Education and Training, developing careers school outreach modules and a network of teachers able to run the modules to secondary students, in particular girls, and the establishment of a Vanuatu Engineers Association offering professional development modules and a network promoting industry internships.

Melinda's Bio:

Living in a Tropical island nation that frequently tops the charts for the nation with the highest overall disaster risk is one of the motivations behind Melinda Obed working in the Environment and Climate Sector. She had the opportunity to join the Incredible Climate Team in the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-hazards Department family (VMGD) working in various roles including; Climatologist, Principle scientific officer for Seasonal Forecasting and Manager for the Climate Services Division. In her 9 years working for the government she was fortunate to travel to some of the most remote communities around Vanuatu conducting awareness and installing rain gauges to representing Vanuatu in Regional meetings.

For the past three years, she engaged as an environment safeguards consultant with the amazing KBC-Elevate Vanuatu Limited team in a number of projects.

In this profession she hopes to effect change through empowering businesses, communities or individuals with knowledge, tools, resources that strengthen resilience to environmental challenges and climate change impacts.

Let us continue to spread the good word about engineering and the impact it can do to our communities.

'We organised a workshop with our partners to explain the methodology of our 'Technology Development Approach', the 'TDA'. Mitch Horrocks, our Technology Development Lead from Australia has been in country for the past few weeks and he was able to present this new methodology from EWB. This was an interactive session to show how we work closely with communities, designing technologies that are appropriate, user-centred and impactful.

Thanks to our partners Shefa Province, Mamma's Laef, Kokoriko community members and Erakor Bridge community members for attending'
