Childhood Education and Basic Needs Support


Think about all of the things you do in a day that help you to learn and be happy and healthy. School alone, or a hot meal alone, is not all a child needs to grow and become a successful adult.

  • Full Project Summary

    Canadian Humanitarian provides the basic necessities for a child for a year to go to school, including educational fees, school uniform, tutoring, extra-curricular clubs and activities, and one hot meal per day. We also provide tutoring classes to help with their homework, and special interest clubs to help them learn new skills (art, drama, dance, sports, literature clubs, environment, debate). On the weekends, the students come to the center to have a shower, do their laundry, help one another with braiding their hair and learning how to care for themselves and their clothing.

  • Project Outcome

    As the students move through their grades to university, college, or vocational training, Canadian Humanitarian continues to assist covering living expenses, transportation, books, and school tuition until they are finished with their formal training. Post-Secondary students graduate from attending the daily after school program, and become part of Canadian Humanitarian’s Scholarship Program.

Kids Go Global - Explore, Act, Inspire.

Kids Go Global is a place for Elementary, Junior and Senior High schools to explore Global Issues and then work alone or with NGOs to take action locally and internationally. It also supports students acting out the issues using theatre and provides opportunities to share student work and projects. It is a partnership between schools, NGOs and Trickster Theatre.
