We are a Canadian international development agency that has been around since 1961. We believe volunteers are the answer to sustainable development, providing skills and knowledge to poverty stricken countries where certain knowledge isn't available locally. The funds raised through this event will support projects that create brighter futures for women around the world. As an added benefit, every $1 donated will be matched by x9 by the Canadian government. That means each dollar you donate has the power of $10! Your dollars mean more!
