We are excited to inform you about a current matching opportunity to benefit the Geoscientists *without* Borders® (GWB) program!
A generous donor has recently made a contribution through the SEG Foundation to raise additional funding in support of the GWB program. The intent of this contribution is to match other individual donors’ contributions directed to the **GWB Support Fund**. This fund supports GWB projects in aiding hundreds — sometimes even thousands — of individuals, for a community in need, to solve a humanitarian crisis.
Take Action Today – We hope that you will take advantage of this matching opportunity while it is available, by making a gift online to the GWB Support Fund or by mailing your contribution to the SEG Tulsa Business Office (125 West 15th Street, Suite #100, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74119-3801). We are here to assist you, so please e-mail us if you have any questions.
Thank you for your support of this unique program!
**Geoscientists *without* Borders® (GWB) Program Overview**
Many of the world’s most pressing humanitarian issues fall into categories where geoscientists can make significant contributions because of their unique and advanced knowledge about the earth. These issues include Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH); food security; Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) which includes landslides, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes; and environmental and cultural conservation.
With the support from SEG Foundation donors, the GWB program has been working to build resilient communities, where geoscience expertise and technology can be applied to a humanitarian need. GWB has a multidisciplinary mandate to use geoscience and technology to respond to these needs, while ensuring long-term sustainability within the impacted community by engaging the next generation of geoscientists and community leaders. Since 2008, GWB has provided more than US$3 million to humanitarian projects by helping to fund more than 55 projects in 34 countries around the world. GWB projects have involved more than 670 students, 80 university partners, 70 community partners, and 20 industry partners.
GWB projects also help address United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). Many projects address multiple goals at the same time. To learn more about UNSDGs, please visit the website.
The SEG and SEG Foundation extend their sincere appreciation to the hundreds of donors who have directly supported the success of the GWB program since inception. A special thanks to Schlumberger for being the founding supporter of GWB, and for their encouragement and continued support of the program each year.
