Local and global communities need help from our humanitarian engineers.
When you support our humanitarian Buckeye engineers, the impact of your gift multiplies. Not only are you enabling Ohio State students to help others in need, you are contributing to their diverse educational experience, and you are helping us show the world that Buckeyes care.
Today, you can support two impactful initiatives, one globally in Tanzania and one local here in Ohio. Please read below to learn more.
Sending Buckeyes to Tanzania
In the rural village of Marwa, Tanzania, women and young girls spend up to seven hours each day collecting the water their families need to survive. But thanks to some passionate Buckeyes, Marwa’s residents now have real hope of having clean, accessible water and a better life — one with educational and economic opportunities never before possible.
Support the Marwa initiative.
Showing children the fun and power of engineering
Many schools in the United States don’t have access to instructors or programs that offer hands-on engineering experiments and expose students to new career paths. Reaching 22,000 K-12 students since 2008, Professor Betty Lise Anderson and student volunteers develop fun, hands-on engineering activities and take them to schools, libraries, camps and clubs to help get children excited about STEM. The program primarily targets underserved communities, minority-rich schools, rural areas and special needs kids.
