Providing Shelter

Our C.A.S.T. team is dedicated to building family homes as well as the infrastructure required to house sustainable development programs: classrooms, medical dispensaries and learning centres.

Our Mission

As a registered Canadian charity, we strive to empower communities stricken by poverty to develop sustainably  through health, shelter, education, skill development and entrepreneurship programs.

The  100% Model

We believe in fully transparent and accountable programs. That’s why all of our operating costs are covered by corporate sponsors. This way, every cent of your donation directly supports the cause of your choice – no exceptions, ever.

Education & Empowerment

Spanning early-childhood education, high school and university sponsorship, our education programs are anchored in the commitment to every individual’s right to an education. Women’s empowerment programs and skills-training workshops offer those who haven’t benefitted from an education a chance at financial independence.


A roof over our heads is not a luxury but a fundamental right, yet it is a right that one fifth of the global population is living without. Our C.A.S.T. Program was established to offer shelter to families in need, and has since grown to include building  infrastructure for other programs, such as classrooms, medical dispensaries and learning centres.


Because no progress in a community can be sustainable without the health of its individuals, our health programs target the distinct and most pressing needs of a region or community. Be it supplying invaluable medication, funding personnel, leading routine campaigns or mobile health clinics, we answer the call.

In 2022-2023, we made women’s empowerment and youth education a priority.
