Join us for The CAIF Pitch Presentation!
Late Fall 2020, Engineers Without Borders Canada was excited to launch the Canada-Africa Innovation Fellowship (CAIF).
Due to the Global Pandemic, EWB had to postpone all three of our Fellowship programs. Out of this situation, CAIF emerged. CAIF was developed to be an Innovation Accelerator providing an opportunity for students to work on innovative solutions to real world problems. The Fellowship, targeting University students in Uganda and Canada is unique for many reasons including that for the first time, EWB is partnering Fellows from Uganda and Canada.
Thanks in part to the great work of our EWB Chapters, the inaugural Canada-Africa Innovation Fellowship program had 10 Canadian and 10 Ugandan Fellows. Divided into groups of 4, each group worked together identifying and creating a solution for real world problems. All this was being done while the individuals participated in a 16-week program that focused on our fellows professional, leadership, entrepreneurial, and innovation skills and capacity development.
The 2021 Canada-Africa Innovation Fellowship program is now in the final stages. We would like to invite you to the pitch presentation session that will take place on Tuesday, August 24 from 10 AM- 12 PM EST
This will be a great opportunity to see the Fellows from the Canada-Africa Innovation Fellowship in action, celebrate their success and learn more about the CAIF program.
