What does Engineers Without Borders do? Where and how does it work? I’m not an engineer; can I still become involved? What exactly can I do? For answers to these questions and more, you are invited to join us for our New Member Happy Hour next Saturday, March 27. Members of EWB-Grand River will be on hand to introduce you to our chapter and our work, and our Junior Fellow Elizabeth Logan will talk about her recent work with EWB in Ghana.
When: Saturday, March 27, 3:30 – 5:30 pm
Where: Huether Hotel (59 King Street North, Waterloo) in the Barley Works Boardroom
About Liz: Recently, Elizabeth Logan traveled to Ghana to work in EWB’s ongoing ‘Agriculture as a Business’ project in cooperation with the Ghanaian Ministry of Food & Agriculture. Liz’s efforts not only helped African farmers pull themselves out of poverty, but are continuing to help enrich the experiences of our chapter. During her field tenure she acted as our eyes and ears on the ground relaying the challenges and successes of her work. Since her return, she has continued to educate and inspire us to enhance the way we think as engineers and individuals in Canada.
