How it Works
The gift you purchase will be sourced locally, i.e. as close to the recipient as possible. This approach provides an extra boost to local economies while keeping transport costs to a minimum.
Select a printed, eCard or PDF card to go to your special somebody. Note that eCards can be scheduled (great for holidays & birthdays). You can also buy a gift without choosing a card.
OUR VISION AND MISSION
1 billion children worldwide
are living in poverty
Join us to help create a world where children thrive free from poverty!
Our mission is to enhance the well-being of children and the self-sufficiency of their families and communities. We fund and support local partners in Ethiopia, Ghana, Uganda, Bolivia and in First Nations communities in Canada, helping to drive community-led action that creates long-term, sustainable food security and access to education.

WITH FOOD SECURITY PROJECTS
The Resilient and Sustainable Livelihoods Transformation (RESULT) project in northern Ghana, and Market-Led Improved Livelihoods in Eastern Amhara Region (MILEAR) in Ethiopia, funded generously by Global Affairs Canada and CFTC’s donors, support smallholder farmers to achieve increased food security, improved agricultural production, better nutrition and greater income in some of the world’s most impoverished and climate-challenged communities.

FIRST NATIONS FOOD SECURITY
CFTC has launched a new phase of our First Nations food security programming with generous funding provided by The Slaight Family Foundation. The Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds initiative is a national, comprehensive food security program with a mandate to partner with 20 new First Nation communities by 2020.
Recognizing that local partners are the most knowledgeable champions of their own community, CFTC will work with First Nation partners to achieve transformative, sustainable change through a combination of hands-on learning for students; consistent, nutritious, culturally appropriate meals; land-based learning and traditional food practices; nutrition education for students, families and community members; and the engagement of youth champions.
