EWB Students from university chapters at the American University in Beirut (AUB), Notre Dame University (NDU), University of Balamand (UOB), and the Lebanese American University (LAU) join hands to help the people in need at Sesobel.
The project aimed at implementing energy saving solutions at the Sesobel headquarters in Aintoura, and was jointly implemented with the private company Solar World which supplied LED lamps and solar water heaters.

The execution of the project at Sesobel started on Friday April 5 and was done on two phases, and might include a third phase based on the status of the project.

The support EWB students offered was in the implementation of the project where more than 100 students from the different university chapters worked together to reduce the implementation cost of the project.
This helped offering Sesobel a more attractive solution with lowest expenses possible.

Students were trained by experts and technicians from the partner company and were exposed to different installation techniques and methods.
