CHARITY GIFTS CANADA HELP FIRST NATIONS COMMUNITIES IN CANADA

Fresh produce boxes with handy recipe guides and nutrition tips are welcome in Indigenous communities where fruits and vegetables are often unavailable or unaffordable.

School breakfasts and lunches feed hungry tummies and fuel learning each school day.

School and community gardens give students hands-on experience to grow, harvest and prepare food from seed to table. Children, youth and community members come together to improve food security for all.

Supply a classroom with indoor garden supplies for students to learn about growing healthy foods and prepare for planting in their school or community garden in the Spring.

Support a Youth Champion to participate in healthy food preparation and distribution activities at school and within their community.

Traditional First Nations activities like food gathering and preparation activities are a fun and educational way to connect students with community Elders and their culture.

An orchard full of fruit will help an entire community have access to healthy, nutritious food.

MATCHED CHARITY GIFTS


Matched gift donations from as little as $12

Goat$75

Fast to reproduce, hardy, and easy to care for, the gift of a goat gives a rural family a welcome form of nutrition as well as sustainable income.

Cute chicks grow up to give excellent nutrition: three can provide 1,000 eggs a year. Your gift includes feed, training, and hen house construction.

Bees$54

Beekeeping training and start-up supplies yield tangible products (honey, wax), promote biodiversity, and aid in pollination for better crops.

Sheep$60

Sheep provide rural families with a sustainable source of nutrition and income. Your gift includes feed and training on care and breeding.

School breakfasts and lunches feed hungry tummies and fuel learning each school day.

Often mandatory yet unaffordable, a school uniform allows a child to enroll in school, boosts their confidence and gives them a sense of belonging.

Bicycle$82

A bicycle makes it easier for community volunteers to visit farm families to provide them with the support they need to thrive.

Good nutrition is crucial for children as they are developing. Your gift provides one year of nutritious food for a child at school in an international location.

There’s food on the table all year long when farmers have the seeds, tools and knowledge to grow veggies in the dry season!

A school latrine improves student health and hygiene, and significantly reduces sanitation-related illness - plus, it helps girls attend and stay in school.

Seeds$36

Seeds are often costly and many farmers are unable to obtain them easily. Give the gift that grows into healthy crops for consumption and sale, and sow hope!

By providing an artisan basket weaver with the supplies she needs, you will be setting her up for success and to earn an income to support her family.

How Charity Gifts
Change Lives


Florence with her family and their goats
After my husband lost his job as a fisherman, we suffered as a family. We used to plead with the school not to chase our three children away when we were behind on fees. We were struggling – and that’s when you came in. Florence, 34, Uganda

Canadian Feed The Children’s local partner HUYSLINCI, with the support of many generous Canadians, offered Florence training in caring for domestic animals and maintaining a vegetable garden. She learned that animals need space that is well planned and maintained as well as how to properly feed them, and to identify disease and illness and how to treat them.

HUYSLINCI also taught her the importance of saving and borrowing, and to not sell animals if an urgent need arises in the household.

These days I spend most of the time looking after my animals. I also grow bountiful vegetables for us to eat and sell and I am so happy that you helped give me those skills. I am proud of the way my little farm is expanding.

Florence is also incredibly proud that she can provide food for her children and afford their school fees. “Look at my children,” she says, placing her hand on the back of her daughter’s head, “they look good….but do you know why?… it’s because of you.”
