Engineers Without Borders
Engineers Without Borders (EWB) Canada is a non-profit national organization that was founded by two University of Waterloo students. This mission statement of the organization is to bring people and ideas together to tackle the most crucial causes of poverty and inequality. The organization consists of chapters from across Canada, with members from all academic backgrounds (not just engineering), that use long-term development and systemic innovation to raise awareness and create change.
The EWB University of Waterloo Chapter does impactful work on campus, in the Kitchener-Waterloo region, and overseas. One of our most successful on campus projects is our podcasts which advertise the systems thinking approach to a variety of different issues. Our youth engagement program has enabled us to educate high school and elementary students on the importance of social issues and long-term solutions. Also, we advocate to the public and politicians to dedicate more resources towards international development. We run fundraising events to raise money for social enterprises in Sub-Saharan Africa. Every year, we hire a Junior Fellow to work for 4 months at a social enterprise in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The ability for our chapter to truly make a difference the world depends on the commitment and effort put in by our outstanding team members. No matter what faculty you're from, we would love to have you be a part of our team. Together, we can help eliminate poverty and inequality in the world.Learn more
