About this event

Engineers for Overseas Development Ltd (EFOD) is a limited liability Charitable Company designed to assist in the development and training of young professionals in the Construction Industry by challenging members to plan and manage construction projects to alleviate poverty in sub-Sahara Africa.

Young volunteers include engineers, architects, project managers and qualified apprentices from the construction industry.

Teams of volunteers will travel to a country, usually for short periods of time, to help promote and provide adequate public health facilities and supervise projects. They work in partnership with the local councils, organisations, local project managers and labour to provide development projects; and to educate and train the local workers in construction techniques and the need for adequate public health and sanitation.

This talk will give an opportunity to hear about EFOD`s work, hear some first-hand experience from Nushma Juwaheer and Sally Sudworth, and to ask questions how you can become involved to support your professional development.

The talk will be held at Stantec UK Ltd`s offices in Birchwood, Warrington.
Parking: There is a car park next to the offices.

Light refreshments will be served from 18:00, with the talk beginning at 18:30 prompt.

Organised by ICE Cheshire branch.
