WHERE WE WORK
Solidarity Engineering focuses on places in crisis where the need is the greatest, and often where support from large international humanitarian organizations and governments is limited or entirely absent.
We are mission-driven and go where community-driven humanitarian engineering solutions are urgently needed, with experience responding to both sudden-onset emergencies and protracted crises. Our scaling plan envisions a fully global organization that can meet the sharply rising demand for humanitarian aid specific to displaced people, especially as climate change rapidly increases this number.
Our current projects are focused on populations from Latin America and the Caribbean, where people are fleeing their homes due to cartel violence, gender-based violence, as well as civil and political unrest. In recent years, increased homicide rates, extortion, and widespread gender-based violence have overwhelmed humanitarian groups, but humanitarian response in the region remains some of the most underfunded in the world.
Since 2020, Solidarity has been active at the U.S.-Mexico border in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV). This region, situated in a hurricane-prone area of the Gulf of Mexico, faces significant needs.
Unfortunately, aid is scarce in this area, which has been one of the most heavily impacted regions of the entire border. While we have activities on both sides of the border, Solidarity's primary focus is on providing WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) services and improving infrastructure in the cities of Reynosa and Matamoros, located in the state of Tamaulipas, Mexico. As the only organization of its kind in the region, Solidarity plays a crucial role in addressing the growing crisis at the border.
