Engineers Without Borders (EWB) Canada is a development group focused on integrating into African countries and creating long-term, sustainable change. Looking to improve Canada's overall global outreach, the group interacts directly with the Canadian government on a non-partisan level to effect lasting policy changes.

As a transparent group (member of the International Aid at Transparency Initiative), Engineers Without Borders Canada seeks to align all Canadian organizations and governmental levels to the same principles they seek to embody. Comparing engineers to "global problem solvers", these do-gooders are using their acquired knowledge to put forth an enduring plan to combat poverty throughout Africa.

With achievements including instituting curriculums in leading universities and the recruitment of over 30,000 young engineers to their cause, the EWB is well on their way to creating a lasting impact from their specialized projects in Africa.
