David Damberger’s work with Engineers Without Borders has taken him from communities in India to Southern Africa to help build infrastructure — and learn.

Why you should listen

David got his start with Engineers without Borders when he founded the organization's Calgary chapter. He then worked for four years as the Engineers without Border's director of Southern African programs, consulting with governments and NGOs on agriculture, sanitation and development. In 2009, he co-founded Ethical Ocean, an online retail company focused on ethical and fair-trade goods.
