Engineers for Overseas Development ( EFOD )

EFOD's aim is to deliver projects which improve the health, hygiene, education
and self-sufficiency of poverty afflicted communities in a sustainable manner.

Engineers for Overseas Development (EFOD) is a Charitable Limited Liability company,
founded by Ian Flower in 2000 to enhance the experience of young construction professionals.

EFOD challenges its members to undertake development projects amongst some of
