Make an International Impact

Engineers Without Borders

Engineers Without Borders creates opportunities for rural Africans to access clean water, generate an income from small farms, and have improved access to the services and infrastructure they need to improve their lives. We harness the problem-solving approach and creative pragmatism of the Canadian engineering sector to address the root causes of poverty in rural Africa.

Global and Intercultural Engagement Honor

The Global and Intercultural Engagement Honor allows students to incorporate both curricular and extracurricular activities. Students awarded this honour will be global-ready graduates: you will have the skills required to negotiate an increasingly globalized reality, both professionally and personally. This Honor will appear on your official transcript upon graduation.

Western Heads East

Western Heads East is Western's Community Response to the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa. The goal of the Western Heads East program is to establish disease-fighting probiotic yogurt programs in highly underserviced areas of Sub-Saharan Africa with alarmingly high rates of HIV/AIDS infection. At the heart of the program is the empowerment of women, "Yoghurt Mamas", to establish community kitchens that make a sustainable difference in African communities economically and physically.
