Welcome to Engineers Without Borders Vancouver City Network!

Our approach

We seek to be a different kind of charity (we don’t even like this word!), so put your “investment hat” on when considering our model and impact.! Our focus is on sparking and refining innovations that can disproportionately reduce poverty in Africa. In particular, we invest in innovations that focus on root-cause problems and can either establish a new best practice that others will copy, or that alter how large institutions work, or that can achieve substantial scale on their own—that is, innovations that spur systems change.

“IF CHANGE ISN’T SYSTEMIC, IT ISN’T CHANGE AT ALL…”
