People to People Aid Organization (Canada)
People to People Aid Organization (Canada) is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1999 in the City of Toronto by a group of concerned Ethiopian-Canadians with the commitment to reversing the spread of HIV/AIDS and other preventable diseases. Our aim is to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS in the Greater Toronto Area and to provide life-sustaining support to orphaned children in Ethiopia.
P2P’s goal is to raise $60,000 in the 2016 Scotia Charity Challenge. To achieve its goal, it will undertake the following measures:
- A dedicated Organizing Committee has already been set-up. It will work to increase the number of runners and regularly monitor the organization’s activities required to reach its goal.
- P2P has already marketed the upcoming Scotiabank Charity Challenge at other fundraising events in the preceding months. P2P will continue to work with community businesses, faith organizations and community youth organizations such as Young Diplomats and MidTown416. P2P will also continue to collaborate with community television stations (e.g. Admas TV and Berhan TV) in promoting its participation in the 2016 Scotiabank Charity Challenge.
For those who raise over $1,000 CAD, P2P will reimburse the registration fee.
