2008-2009 Chapter successes

It's been quite the year here at the U of S.  From a stealthy (but epic) Make Poverty History banner project, to a phenomenal Fair Trade Fair, to some great outreach on the streets of Saskatoon promoting fair trade, to school outreach presentations that are spanning the province.   Our chapter was awarded the "Most Improved Chapter" award at the 2009 EWB National Conference, and our past president, Mark Boots, was awarded Volunteer of the Year nation-wide.

Our Junior Fellows

In just a few weeks, our EWB Junior Fellows (summer overseas volunteers) are heading to Africa for an intense summer of on-the-ground impact, learning, and sharing.  Tamara Sonntag and Colleen Steele are going to Southern and Northern Malawi, respectively.  We're all very excited for them.  Be sure to check back here shortly for updates on their overseas blogs!
