Many of iTeams Canada's Impact Programs have initiatives to address food insecurities in the implementing communities where our local leaders work. Whether teaching cooking classes in Guatemala, running breakfast programs for children in need in the Carmen Bajo neighbourhood in Ecuador, developing community gardens in Haiti, or providing lunch for street-connected youth at a drop-in centre in Uganda, our programs understand that nutrition and issues of food security are major factors to address in pursuit of ending poverty.
Will you take a stand against food insecurity and malnutrition this Thanksgiving by donating to my campaign in support of iTeams Canada programs today?
My name is Sheila Brewster and I'm a recent International Development Grad from University of Toronto Scarborough. I was recently hired by International Teams Canada, an international development agency based in Elmira, ON that seeks to see Lives and Communities Transformed by the power of God through partnerships that support local-led work in Africa, Latin America, Europe, and Canada.
My six-month internship will offer me opportunities to learn from industry leaders in fundraising, development practice, and even photography. I will explore theologies of development, create plans for our design, monitoring, and evaluation work of iTeams programs, and actually spend some time in-country visiting one of International Teams Canada's implementing communities.
I'm so excited at the amount of industry and non-profit experience I'm gaining throughout this internship, including an important element of any charitable career: fundraising!
My goal is to raise $10, 000 over the course of the next six months to support the amazing, locally-led poverty-alleviating initiatives that iTeams Canada is involved with. Here at iTeams, our mantra is, we are not okay, until we're all okay. Do you identify with that sentiment?
Let's work together to support local leaders who are tirelessly working in their own communities to make sure no one's needs are overlooked.
