WHO ARE WE

BORDERLESS evolved from the fact that Ukrainian refugees and IDPs were being overshadowed by the geopolitics of the recent war. Initially, the purpose of this project was to fundraise for a cause important to every member of our team, with a direct connection to the country for one. However, by bringing the Ukrainian refugee crisis to the forefront, there was the realization that there are other crises that are not receiving enough attention.
As a result, we are committed to spotlighting a different refugee crisis every year, to bring it the attention it deserves.
Today, our team consists of University of Toronto undergraduate students who all agree that the severity of the issue is disproportionate to the attention it is receiving. We share a common goal of putting the people first. This year, we are partnering with UNHCR in order to better facilitate the aid of those directly affected by the crisis.

Our Beliefs

EVERY PERSON MATTERS

EVERY CRISIS MATTERS

OUR MISSION

BORDERLESS is a grassroots, non-partisan, non-profit organization which uses creative means of expression to draw attention to, educate on, and raise funds for often overlooked internally displaced persons (IDP) and refugee crises around the world by bringing together people of various backgrounds.
Our long-term vision is to be able to provide medical and general assistance to areas in immediate need. Funds raised by BORDERLESS and other student clubs, societies, and organizations would be sent to regions with large numbers of refugees that do not receive sufficient aid.

Our Causes

2016: COLOMBIA
Colombia's ongoing civil war between government and insurgent forces has tragically affected and displaced millions of innocent civilians. BORDERLESS seeks to bring back awareness about this forgotten issue, and raise funds which will be donated to an affiliated charity.
2015: MYANMAR
Our campaign this year focuses on the internal conflicts in Myanmar. We will host academic awareness events and raise funds to support Burmese civilians displaced by Myanmar's internal conflicts.
2014: THE UKRAINIAN IDP CRISIS
BORDERLESS’s 2014-15 campaign focused on bringing relief to Ukrainian IDPs displaced by the conflict in the Donbass region.
