Navjot Sawhney

Founder of The Washing Machine Project

Founder of The Washing Machine Project Nav is using his engineering expertise and knowledge of market-ready design, development and implementation to create real change.

During the 1947 Indian Independence, Nav’s father and his family fled their home from what is now Pakistan with only the clothes on their backs. This has always been the foundation of why he wants to help people fleeing conflict.

Whether it’s building lifesaving cookstoves in rural India, being a trustee of an international development charity, Engineers Without Borders UK (EWB-UK), building clean water systems for an orphanage in Namibia or volunteering his time at a local homeless shelter for migrants in London.

With over five years of professional engineering experience at global technology companies such as Dyson and Jaguar Land Rover behind him, he is turning his attention to make a difference with The Washing Machine Project.

The ultimate goal is to develop young people
from diverse backgrounds to improve their future prospects!
