E4C Visualized: Our First Decade in Photos
contributor: Rob Goodier
Engineering for Change celebrates our 10th anniversary this year. To commemorate the ocassion, we’ve flipped through the photo album to find images of the events and milestones we’ve crossed to get here.
Noha El-Ghobashy (center), E4C’s former President, shows the beta site to attendees of Maker Faire Africa in 2009.
Iana Aranda, E4C’s President, displays our beta site on a laptop at A Better World By Design, hosted by Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design in 2010.
E4C invited startups, non-profit engineering and design organizations, academics and others to our E4C Connect networking event in Denver in 2011.
We held a forum at IEEE’s Global Humanitarian Technology Conference in Seattle, Washington, in 2011.
E4C Connect in San Francisco, California, convened startups and engineering non-profits in 2011.
Steve Katsaros (center) holds up a solar-powered lightbulb that he produces through his startup, Nokero. Mr. Katsaros is a part of a panel at E4C Connect:Washington DC, a networking event we hosted in 2012.
William Kamkwamba, the man pictured in the photo under our logo, famously built an electricity-generating wind turbine from parts he found in his village in Malawi. In E4C’s early days, Mr. Kamkwamba and his story had a place on our website, in our news and in our promotional materials as an inspiration to which we could aspire.

The work of ensuring reliable, affordable and sustainable energy access has taken center stage in the international development sector. This new focus on energy has two rationales: it increases opportunities for economic development and better living standards, and more than 3 billion people still depend on traditional energy sources for cooking and heating. Those traditional sources principally include unprocessed biofuels, such as wood, crop residues and animal dung. Families then...
