Vision, Mission & Values

A world in which children thrive,
free from poverty.

Our MISsion

To reduce the impact of poverty on children. We work with local partners internationally and in Canada to enhance the well-being of children and the self-sufficiency of their families and communities.

Our Approach

We take an approach that builds capacity in communities to achieve their own long-term sustainable change. We follow best practice in development based on a formal Theory of Change, which includes monitoring, evaluation, and attention to gender and climate change as cross-cutting themes. Read more.
