We’re a registered charity dedicated to family welfare, empowering communities & developing self-sufficiency programs to end poverty in Burundi and Rwanda, East Africa, and in Calgary, Canada.
We host an annual “Back to School” program to provide children in Burundi with school essentials like backpacks and writing tools. We began the program in 2012, and so far helped 350 children attend school. We also sponsor individual children. An annual donation of $250 provides school supplies, basic needs such as food, school uniform, and a health care card, which allows the child to access medical services.
Wings of Hope for Africa provides financial support to low-income families and single parents in Calgary, Alberta. Our support includes food hampers, grocery gift cards,school supplies, winter clothing, and Christmas toys. Working with partners in low-income areas, we select the individuals in most need of help and provide them with hope.We also provide support for families to identify other resources available to them in the city of Calgary
We support vulnerable families by developing education and co-operative projects to generate income, foster community building, and strengthen traditional methods of self-sufficiency through agriculture, or small business activities. With these programs, we create economic sustainability and growth, leading to reduced poverty while increasing quality of life. We currently operate in the communities of Buterere and Kivumu, in Burundi.
Our Emergency Relief Program is designed to provide assistance to individuals or families in personal distress, or who are victims of a physical disaster. In 2014, we provided emergency relief to victims of flooding in Buterere, Burundi, by supplying them with basics such as blankets, clothing, bedding, food and clean water, as well as by creating mitigation plans for affected crops and recouping losses.
