The Canadian International Learning Foundation (CanILF) is an Ottawa-based, volunteer-run registered charity which provides and promotes employment-oriented education in areas of the world affected by poverty, war and disease epidemics (at-risk areas).
CanILF seeks to achieve its goals through the following activities:
Scholarships and Infrastructure â€“ Awarding scholarships to students who demonstrate academic potential, community service and leadership, and to provide educational equipment (such as computers or textbooks) to the schools they attend;
Online Courses â€“ Providing education (such as courses in entrepreneurship, business management or Information Technology) to students via the Internet; and
Mentoring â€“ Offering instruction, advice and practical assistance on planning, management and proposal writing to the leaders of educational institutions.
The Learning Foundation provides financial and administrative support to 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 provides support to St. Paulâ€™s Kabira Adult Attention and School of Orphans (KAASO) via the Uganda Literacy and Education Program (ULEP). KAASO is a primary school, orphanage, and adult education centre in the rural district of Rakai, Uganda.
For more information on both the Afghan School Project and the Uganda Literacy and Education Program, please visit our Projects section.
We need your help to provide life-changing education to those who need it most. When it costs less than $15 to send one of our students to school for a month, you donâ€™t have to make a big donation to make a big difference. Please Donate, and help change a life.
