Bagging the way to Burkina Faso and Ghana 

Magnifying glass

Concordiaís Engineers Without Borders chapter spent Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 bagging groceries in the Alexis Nihon Plaza IGA to raise money. The two-day drive, which had students offering paper or plastic for tips, raised $1 012. The donations will help send students Rob Austen and Farah Haddad (at left, in foreground) overseas this summer. Austen hopes to use his skills on a water hygiene and sanitation project in Burkina Faso and Haddad is headed for an agricultural project in Ghana.

EWB will be back in IGA on Feb. 21 and 22 CANCELLED to raise awareness as well by explaining EWB activities and promoting fair trade products. They are hoping for more volunteers to join them but if you canít spare some time to help raise funds, perhaps you could plan your grocery shopping to offer them financial support.
