Canadian Samaritans for Africa.
The Canadian Samaritans for Africa is a registered Canadian charity founded on the principles of love, solidarity, partnership, and collaboration. We believe that Africa needs solidarity and collaboration, not pity and sympathy. We are determined to support asset-based grassroots goals than needs-based interventionist approaches. In order to realize this, we reach out to African women in rural communities, faith, and non-faith organizations to promote integral education of girls and women, capacity-building, women skills development and micro-credit co-operative groups, and rural water and sanitation projects.
We are a pro-active group determined to support small initiatives at the rural level in Africa in the areas of education, health, women development, and water development. We believe that the end of poverty in Africa will come about through a pro-active approach that stimulates development through cultural and human development at the grassroots level, rather than reactionary approaches which perpetuate a cycle of dependency. .
