Hi, my name is Hilary and I am excited to be the Junior Fellow from Western University’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders! I just finished up my third year of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at Western, and am looking forward to seeing what’s in store for me in Ghana this summer.
This summer, I will be working with VOTO Mobile, which is a mobile engagement company based out of Kumasi, Ghana that is working to reduce the communication barriers by taking advantage of mobile phone technology so that citizens have a greater voice. More specifically I will be working on how to better reach and engage rural women through mobile engagement, so that VOTO’s work can be more effective.
There will be more updates soon, but in the meantime, if you would like anymore information about EWB, VOTO, or what I will be doing this summer, check out the links below.
