Borderless World Volunteers is a registered Canadian charity with the mandate of empowering youths to lead development projects across the globe while contributing to the wellness of their local communities.
During the academic year, students identify grassroots organizations in developing countries in need of assistance and capacity building. Through a collaborative process, students help develop long-term, sustainable solutions to the challenges faced by the affiliated communities in which these organizations are based. Students then travel to implement these solutions in the summer, allowing for successful application of the knowledge and skills they learned.
The students’ expenses associated with these projects are financed by the charity through a multitude of fundraising events, including our annual flagship symposiums – the Global Development Forum and the International Food Festival. A portion of the charity’s proceeds also support members’ efforts in enhancing the quality of life of the homeless and underprivileged community in Montreal.
