Careforce International is a force of people devoted to bringing help, healing and hope to children in need around the world.
We are passionate about changing lives – the lives of children in need and lives of people who are willing to BE THE ONE to help meet the needs of those children.
We engage in partnerships with projects, individuals and organizations in areas where there are children living in poverty, without any opportunity to realize their potential. We assist by providing resources (people, items, funds), strategic planning, training which enable our projects to better support the children in their care. The projects in which we are actively engaged are:
Children should not be anonymous. They should be given the chance to be healthy, to learn, to grow and to succeed. In the developing world however, children who get these chances are few and far between. By supporting Careforce International you can play a significant role in providing food, clean water, shelter, clothing, formal education and vocational training and much more to children who deserve no less. Careforce International provides a number of different ways for you to get involved – you can visit one of our projects on a 1-2 week TEAM EXPERIENCE or choose to support the children at one of our projects through our SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM. Visit www.careforceinternational.ca for more details.
As an organization we are committed to changing lives. By walking or running the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront 5k, Half or Full Marathon with us you will have the opportunity to change your life as well as the lives of children living in poverty. As a team we will learn skills, develop endurance and experience camaraderie with the satisfaction of knowing that we walk/run not only for ourselves, but for the children.
We want to encourage you to use your love for running or walking to help realise children's potential! All donations over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt and fundraising is easier than you might think! Contact Careforce Run Squad's team captain Jayme Van Geest for more details or to join!
