Our objective is to support, on an annual basis, at least two major education projects ($100,000 each and more) targeting the most vulnerable and marginalized girls in the most impoverished countries with the greatest gender disparity in school enrolment in partnership with Canadian charitable organizations that support educational initiatives in developing countries.
The project can take many forms: school construction, teacher training, providing supplies, fees or equipment, supporting activities which will increase girls’ access to school (water projects, daycare, adolescent classes), community support programs, etc.
The projects must not discriminate or restrict access based on religion, race, socio-economic factors or ability to pay. At least 50% of students enrolled must be female. The curriculum may not support a religious, racial or political point of view. The program must be child-friendly.
