EWB Canada

ewbEngineers Without Borders creates opportunities for rural Africans to access clean water, generate an income from humble farms, and have improved access to services and infrastructure they need to improve their lives. We are dedicated to finding widespread, sustainable solutions to extreme poverty in Africa, helping communities find solutions for a better future.

EWB harnesses the problem-solving approach, technical skills, and creative pragmatism of the Canadian engineering sector to address the root causes of poverty in rural Africa. Our overseas volunteers partner with local entrepreneurs, organisations, and government ministries in the areas of water and sanitation, agricultural productivity and market access, and governance in rural infrastructure.

Here in Canada, we engage Canadians, our government, companies, and universities to build their connections to Africa and make choices that promote and contribute to human development.
