Welcome to Christian Children Fund of Canada in the partnership
HAP International is pleased to announce Christian Children Fund of Canada (CCFC) as a new Full Member in the partnership.
Christian Children Fund of Canada is a registered Canadian charity that has been contributing significantly to the fight against poverty for more than fifty years. The organisation works hand in hand with local NGO partners operating in 53 child-focused community development programs in eight countries: Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Tanzania, Ghana, Nicaragua, Paraguay, India, and Sri Lanka.
Christian Children Fund of Canada is also a member of the ChildFund Alliance, a network of 12 child development organisations whose work encompasses more than 15 million children and their families in 55 countries throughout Asia, Latin America, and Africa.
Christian Children Fund of Canada is committed to protecting the fundamental rights of children to attend school, and ensuring they have access to clean water, basic healthcare, and adequate nutrition, as well as social services, shelter, and psychosocial support.
In addition to helping communities build a strong development foundation, Christian Children Fund of Canada has many years of experience providing emergency humanitarian assistance, both individually and jointly with other members of the ChildFund Alliance. The primary concern of the organisation during times of crisis is protecting children, as they are most vulnerable to abuse and neglect in times of disaster.

"If you are just very transparent to them [the community] and give them a clear picture about what the project does and what is going on then they will just accept and be grateful...If you just tell them the truth and what you have at that time in hand. If what you have is little just put in front of them, tell them "I have just this much of things and I need only five people [to be chosen for the beneficiary list] so you select your own people."
