The UBC EWB Fundraising team aims to create relevant and fun events to help spread awareness and raise funds for our chapter’s cause. This school year, our fundraising efforts are geared towards the national EWB It Takes a Village campaign, specifically the Agriculture Value Chains venture (AVC).
It Takes A Village: Agriculture Value Chains (AVC)
The AVC venture aims to launch the Market Facilitation Learning Hub in Kampala, Uganda in order to provide local groups with skills development, training and collaboration opportunities. This project will be a way for EWB to create lasting change in the community while collaborating with other NGOs, as well as providing an exit strategy for EWB.
