Students Without Borders
Students Without Borders was first established at Murdoch University (Perth, Western Australia) in 2004 and endured to 2010. It became one of the largest student volunteer programs in the nation and with significant global social reach. Students Without Borders coordinated around 100 volunteer programs, including the 8Ball computer recycling program which recycled, refurbished and donated 55,000 superseded computers to people without a computer over a period of only six years.
In 2016, the Institute of Social Justice and Human Rights re-established Students Without Borders. The ISJHR will coordinate an effort to establish Students Without Borders in campuses around our world. Students Without Borders is an opportunity at furthering human connectedness and a profound transformational education for all those involved, everyone is a beneficiary.
In 2008, Students Without Borders was a finalist in three of the eight categories of the Western Australian Government Community Services Awards, winning two of the categories. Students Without Borders was the recipient of seven national and international awards for community development and outreach work and volunteerism.
