We are excited to launch our “It Takes a Village to Build a Village” campaign, reaching out to our village of Canadian donors to help us raise funds to build a village in Haiti over the next 9 months, breaking ground in June 2019.
Our goal is to raise $1,000,000 to build 60 houses with water, sanitation and solar lights, 2 community wells, solar street lights and 4 agricultural projects for sustainable livelihoods. We will be hosting various fundraising events throughout the year in support of the campaign.
Our new campaign ads were recently published in The Globe and Mail and will be on the TTC subway in the fall. We would like to thank our “village” of marketing and design people who have helped us build and execute this campaign pro bono:
