Our Hope: Empowered Communities
Sustaining relief assistance until people have sufficient health and energy to start rebuilding their lives is only one part of WRCanada’s holistic approach. WRCanada is intent on fostering self-help and long-term development through strategic development programs which focus on clean water, food security, agriculture, health, and microfinance. Led by local partners, the projects provide resources and support that enable individuals and communities to improve their living conditions and develop their overall capacities, not only building lives but also futures.
Our partners identify and invest in local individuals with the capacity to become astute and empowering leaders. These individuals build local pride, dignity, and vision by leading their own communities in meeting local needs.
