I am going to Zambia for 13 months starting in August 2007.
I will be working for EWB in partnership with CARE on a scaled Sorghum Commercialisation Project
Engineers without Borders (EWB) is an organisation that was started in 2000 by two University of Waterloo Engineering students. The vision of EWB is the appropriate application of technology in order to alleviate poverty and improve standards of living in developing communities around the world. EWBs focus is on tailoring technology to each community's social, cultural, economic and political context. They send Canadian volunteers overseas to work in partnership with local organisations on projects that involve and empower the local people. EWB also does a lot of work here in Canada raising awareness about issues facing developing countries as well as affecting policy changes at our government levels. Please check out their website at:
Would you like to support me by supporting EWB?
I am fundraising and any donations would be very much appreciated! Tax receipts can be given for donations exceeding $20. All cheques should be made out to Engineers Without Borders. If someone requires a tax receipt they should indicate this with the cheque and provide a return mailing address and contact information.
