We’re thrilled to announce that our 3 Weeks, 30 Scholarships fundraiser was a huge success – we exceeded our goal of raising $9,000 in three weeks, raising more than $14,000 for scholarships in Kandahar and a further $3,000 for educational equipment in Uganda. Amazing!
We are now just $6,000 away from unlocking a $15,000 matching grant from the Cadmus Foundation and fully funding 150 women’s scholarships through to April 2015. To help us reach this goal, please donate here.
The Canadian International Learning Foundation (CanILF) is a volunteer-run registered Canadian charity which provides education and mentors educators in areas of the world affected by war, illness and poverty (at-risk areas).
CanILF helps in several different ways:
Scholarships and Infrastructure – We award scholarships to students who demonstrate academic potential, community service and leadership, and provide educational equipment (such as computers or textbooks) to our partner schools;
Online Courses – Offering education (such as courses in entrepreneurship, business management or Information Technology) to students via the Internet; and
Mentoring Educators – Providing advice, instruction and practical assistance on curriculum development, technology and infrastructure, public relations and strategic planning to the leaders of educational institutions.
CanILF sponsors scholarships, purchases equipment and provides development assistance for a school in Kandahar (The Kandahar Institute of Modern Studies) as part of our Afghan School Project (ASP). Through the Afghan School Project, we have helped hundreds of students obtain high-paying employment that allows them to provide a living for themselves and their families while participating in the reconstruction of Afghanistan.
The Learning Foundation also sponsors students and provides educational equipment for St. Paul’s Kabira Adult Attention and School of Orphans (KAASO) via the Uganda Literacy and Education Program (ULEP). CanILF sponsors 50 student scholarships through KAASO’s Community Empowerment Program, which provides training in business, literacy, and small-scale industry and agriculture.
For further information on either project, please visit our Projects section.
The Foundation’s Adopt-A-Student Program is a great way for donors to learn more about the students they’re helping or sponsor a student in someone’s name as a gift for a wedding, birthday or holiday. Adopt-A-Student also makes a great way for a class, group or workplace to give back. To learn more, please click here.
We need your help to provide life-changing education to those who need it most. When it costs less as little as $10 to send one of our students to school for a month, you don’t have to make a big donation to make a big difference. Please Donate, and help change a life.
