Get Involved

sponsorChildEducated children make better choices and can therefore build a better future for themselves and their families.

With less than $1/day (only $240/year), you can give a child in need a chance to attend school for one year.

Sponsored children will have their tuition fees paid, and will receive school supplies, school uniforms, health care, and basic personal care supplies, such as soap and toothpaste.

I want to volunteer

Your business can help Dufashanye Canada Foundation make a positive change in the lives of impoverished children and families by supporting a project, such as building/equipping a school or community health center, education sponsorship, or a small community development project.

I [Tree Stone Bakery] am happy to support Dufashanye Canada for several reasons. It is my belief that one must support his local community, businesses and agricultural professionals, this done while helping and supporting others in need internationally.

Dufashanye gives me the opportunity to do just that. Being an organisation based in Edmonton and presided by Jean-Jacques Mitakaro who lives and work in Edmonton,  I get the chance to see the progress that is made in Burundi first hand.
