Engineers for Overseas Development ( EFOD )
Our aim is to deliver projects which improve the health, hygiene, education and self-sufficiency of poverty afflicted communities
in a sustainable manner.
We are a Charitable Limited Liability company, founded by Ian Flower in 2000 to enhance the experience of young construction
We challenge our members to undertake development projects amongst some of the poorest communities in rural Africa
and provide them with opportunities to broaden their skills and experience.
