Projects we’re currently involved with:
Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus is the man who started the micro-lending phenomenon. Others have taken up this cause for great benefit to thousands of impoverished entrepreneurs who otherwise would not have the opportunity to create better lives for themselves and their community. Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity for small business owners and entrepreneurs around the world.
FINCA provides financial services to the world's lowest-income entrepreneurs so they can create jobs, build assets and improve their standard of living. We are an anti-poverty organization whose work is aimed at creating employment, raising family incomes, and reducing poverty worldwide.
Women for Women International provides women survivors of war, civil strife and other conflicts with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency, thereby promoting viable civil societies. We're changing the world one woman at a time. A woman survivor of war is partnered with her sponsor and spends the next 12 months in a life skills program specifically designed to provide her access to knowledge and resources, resulting in lasting social and economic change. The program consists of 4 modules of curriculum, each lasting 3 months. Module 1 is “Sustaining an Income”, Module 2 is “Health and Wellness”, Module 3 is “Family and Community Decision-Making”, and Module 4 is “Social Networks and Safety Nets”. Each sponsored sister learns leadership skills and techniques for negotiation and conflict management. Going forward, she is then placed into an after-program support group as she begins her new hope filled and empowered life.
World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. As followers of Jesus, we are motivated by God's love for all people regardless of race, religion, gender or ethnicity. Although World Vision focuses on sponsoring children, their aid assists the entire village to become self-sufficient.
We are currently supporting a local Cambodian to fulfill her dream to become a doctor for her community. The cost to send her to medical school is C$3,400 per year or C$283 per month. We are proud to sponsor Konikta through Vuthy’s Ministry on her journey to bring life and vital health care services to a people in need.
PSFS’s mission is to celebrate and cultivate Japanese Canadian and Asian Canadian arts and culture; to encourage Asian Canadians to take a leadership role in the development of the arts in Canada; and to foster community development, environmental sustainability and support for the Downtown Eastside neighbourhood area.

This area was the cultural centre of the Japanese Canadian community in Vancouver. It is our legacy to continually bring the rich culture and diversity of Asian Canadians to Vancouver.

The Fraser Insitute measures government intervention, studies its impact on individuals and families, and communicates that impact to Canadians. This allows Canadians to see and understand the costs and consequences of government actions. The average Canadian family pays more in taxes than they spend on food, clothing, and shelter combined. They deserve to know whether they are receiving value for all that money. As an independent research and educational organization, the Fraser Institute is funded entirely by charitable donations. These tax-deductable contributions, from Canadians like you, have funded decades of our independent, evidence-basded research.
