Allan Evans

Allan Evans (PhD EE ‘10) pictured left and Scott Wright (PhD EE ‘09) pictured right are exploring different parts of the world in 2010, with trips planned for Taiwan, China, Thailand, Israel, Egypt, India, Nepal, and South America. They won’t simply be travelling as a way to take in the sites, however. Along the way, they’ll be connecting with a variety of public service organizations to help children and adults in need at the locations they visit. This includes teaching English in rural Thailand; teaching math and science in English to Sudanese refugees in Cairo; and helping to rebuild Pisco, Peru, which is still hurting from an earthquake a few years ago.

Believing that others share a similar passion for travel combined with a social consciousness, they formed the non-profit company Globe Shares; their mission is to facilitate global generosity. Globe Shares will connect travelers with places that could use their help, and they will help raise funds for the communities in need of building supplies and other basic needs. Allan and Scott will sit on the board of Globe Shares and continue the work even after they return and continue their careers as professional engineers.
