What is a Project?

FOTOCAN One and Two Week Projects

Every year, we organize travel to some of the nine homes in order for Canadians to experience life in our homes and financially assist the homes through donations given. Each team member works in conjunction with the staff of the home to initiate and complete work projects needed for the home to function independently. Some of these projects may include providing food or clothing or other necessities for the children, maintenance of some of the equipment and machinery used in everyday life or providing structures from schools to sidewalks as needed by each individual home. Some of our board members have volunteered their services to lead these teams (Country Co-ordinators) in each country and the selection of the countries we travel to varies annually. Your donation includes flight and accommodations, most meals and transportation to and from the home in country…A receipt for income tax purposes is issued as per Revenue Canada Guidelines There are opportunities in each country to do some cultural excursions at an extra cost.

Upcoming Projects in Winter 2018 for our homes will be announced at the Annual General Meeting on May 6, 2017.
