In 2011, TransCanada initiated a three-year, $300,000 partnership with EWB in order to help tackle the problem of persistent poverty in Africa. This month, the successful partnership was renewed for another two years, increasing TransCanada’s financial investment to $145,000 each year. The unique partnership includes the secondment of 10 employees to EWB projects for six months each (with four months spent in Africa), making use of the skills of TransCanada employees to support local entrepreneurs and create opportunities for growth.

TransCanada’s 2013 secondees, Leanne LeBlanc and Tim Hirtle, are looking forward to building rewarding relationships of their own at their EWB placements in Africa that begin next month.

Read more about their upcoming adventure, and stories from one of last year's secondees, on our blog.
