One of the main goals of the EWB organization is to assist in the sustainability and development of third world countries. In order to do so, the NIU chapter has made it one of our main goals to host a number of charity events that aim to better the lives of individuals amongst these countries.

A Day Without Shoes

"A Day Without Shoes," is one of our biggest and most popular charity events. This event’s main goal is to provide shoes for children in Africa that would otherwise never own a pair of their own. Hundreds of NIU students, faculty and staff participate by donating their own footwear and pledging to go a day (or even a week) without shoes.
