In Africa, our committed and innovative volunteers work in  ...   innovative ways to apply them.. Our work is focused on enabling rural Africans the opportunity to access clean water, generate an income from humble farms, and access critical infrastructure and services.. At home, EWB is leveraging our network of 34 professional and student chapters to create lasting change across Canada..
