ABOUT ANIDA

At ANIDA, we are individuals who believe that it takes more than passion to create a world of difference. Founded in 1997 as a skill and support network, we aim to empower underserviced communities by removing obstacles that prevent children from accessing education and which keeps women and their families in poverty.

EDUCATION

EDUCATION
Worldwide, over 200 million children are not enrolled in elementary or secondary school. At ANIDA, we strive to ensure that children can complete their elementary and secondary school educations without disruption. When children have access to education, they are less likely to access their healthcare and political system.

OPPORTUNITY

OPPORTUNITY
When women have access to skills and literacy training, they are more likely to send their own children to school and become economically self-reliant. Higher literacy rates enable greater involvement in community decision-making and are even linked with better health outcomes. At ANIDA, we believe that women and children are important groups in the fight for eradicating social and economic unfairness.

HUMANITARIAN AID

HUMANITARIAN AID
When disaster strikes, and families cannot go to work or send their children to school, ANIDA partners with local organizations to ensure that emergency supplies are delivered.

FOOD

FOOD
1 out of 5 children in Canada miss breakfast because they do not have access to nutritious food. Yet proper nutrition is crucial for academic success, physical energy, and mental health. In order to meet the immediate needs of our community, ANIDA food banks are located in Toronto, and Ottawa.
