ABOUT US: 

Our podcast, ideas without borders, is run by the Engineers Without Borders Chapter at the University of Waterloo. It focuses on systemic issues that pertain to everyone, not just engineers or Waterloo students.

EWB harnesses the problem-solving approach, technical skills, and creative pragmatism of the Canadian engineering sector to address the root causes of poverty.

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.

Our overseas volunteers partner with local entrepreneurs, organizations, and government ministries in the areas of water and sanitation, agricultural productivity and market access, and governance in rural infrastructure.
