Ali in MalawiQ.: "What can I do with EWB?"
A.: Change the world!

EWB envisions a world of opportunity, dignity and freedom for all people. Unfortunately, billions of people in the world struggle every day in the face of great adversity.  EWB works in Canada and around the world to end poverty.  Our mission is to promote human development through access to technology.

This page is all about what you can do, 
as an EWB member, to help create
 this change.

There's a lot of cool stuff you can do with EWB - activities that are both a lot of fun and help make a better world, which is a pretty sweet combination.  Check out our different teams and get involved today!  We'd love to have you on the team.
