Hello! This is my first attempt at a video post so hopefully I’ve done everything right.
The video is a short bilingual introduction to my 6-month placement with Engineers Without Borders Canada in Burkina Faso, which will focus on developing Burkinabe student leadership and entrepreneurship. By working with university administrators, teachers and students, I hope to help those students realize and develop their potential to bring lasting positive change to Burkina Faso. (Check out a few more details about my placement and EWB’s work in Burkina here!)
Our first Burkinabé volunteer and a major source of inspiration for our team in general and for this initiative in particular, Nasser, shares a tiny bit of his own story.
Hopefully, a better internet connection will let me put more videos like this in the future. Let me know what you think!
