EWB Canada seeks to create a thriving and sustainable world. They do this by investing in people—both their members in Canada, and local entrepreneurs in sub-Saharan Africa. They focus their time and energy on tapping into local entrepreneurs, rather than deploying their own construction projects. They foster lasting, meaningful change that affects the systems that create and perpetuate poverty. They see this not as a side project for engineers, but as part of their place in society.
