Our Mission is “to bring students, faculty and community members together to improve the daily lives of developing communities through sustainable infrastructure."
Aggies Without Limits of New Mexico State University was founded in the spring of 2007. We are a nonprofit organization established to partner with developing communities worldwide in order to improve their quality of life. Aggies Without Limits helps those in need through involvement in sustainable engineering projects while at the same time fostering the development of internationally and environmentally responsible students and professionals. Our members are not just engineering students, but people from all walks of life who want to give back to the planet through advocacy and activity.
All around the world communities lack basic infrastructure such as potable water systems, roads, bridges, schools, and health care centers. Aggies Without Limits picks two new projects every year, one local project and one international project. We take into consideration all ideas that are submitted to us and from there our membership decides which project will be most beneficial to the largest number of people. Once a project is selected we begin the long processes of design, scheduling and budgeting. The community is also researched and we establish contact with both community leaders and local political leaders. We then proceed by choosing project managers who will be in charge of directing the process, helping with the engineering design and organizing both the student and community membership for the task ahead. We are continuously involved in various fundraising activities that support the project and pay for member’s traveling expenses. Once we complete the design, logistics, and fundraising to it’s time to move to the implementation phase of the project where we work side by side with the community to construct the project.
Aggies Without Limits vision is that all people have unrestricted access to basic needs and that progress is not limited by the lack of infrastructure.
