An information system was designed for a non-profit organization located in an international, developing community for an undergraduate engineering course. The project team went through the process of identifying needs, generating concepts, selecting a design, and implementing and testing the final design. In this paper, similarities and differences of this project compared to other projects in the course are explored. The team was confronted with unique problems resulting from working with an international sponsor in a developing community. Communication and donations of varying types were important players in overcoming these obstacles.
