Help provide clean running water for a school and allow an entire community of children to benefit from its health impact. Clean water protects from diarrheal diseases which are leading causes of death among children.
Children fleeing conflict have been ripped from their homes, schools, and sometimes their families. Provide a child with the care they need to endure the chaos of conflict: emergency food, medicine, a clean water kit, trauma support, and access to education.
Every girl has the right to an education. Too often, families can’t afford to keep their daughters in school and feel compelled to consider early marriage. Staying in school delays marriage and childbirth, and provides girls with an opportunity to become self-sufficient. Books, learning materials, and access to education allow a girl to pursue her dreams.
Climate emergencies like drought significantly affect drier areas of the world with devastating results on food security for children. Help a child survive a drought by providing emergency food, high-nutrient peanut paste for malnutrition, and clean water.
The number of children experiencing deadly malnutrition is increasing at a staggering rate. Provide life-saving treatment for children over several weeks, including high-nutrient food (peanut paste), fortified milk, and medical care such as antibiotics.
Child, early and forced marriage ends a girl’s education, limits her ability to have a decent livelihood, forces adult responsibilities, and puts her at risk of early pregnancies and maternal death. Support work with girls, their parents, and community leaders to change social norms, helping to end this gender-based violence.
There are approximately 70 Indigenous languages currently spoken in Canada — it is projected that only three will still be spoken in 30 years. Alongside local Indigenous partners, support the creation of audio/video resources and books to revitalize Indigenous languages and help a child reclaim the connection to their spirituality, culture, and identity.
A donation of this amount gives children life-saving nutrition, healthcare, education, and livelihood support, where and when they need it the most.
