Transforming Lives, Changing Communities

The overarching principle that guides the design and implementation of International Needs Canada’s activities is sustainability: programs and initiatives must fit naturally with the communities they serve and they should be focused on having a positive long-term impact on the health and well-being of the community.

One way of ensuring sustainability is through effective, indigenous leadership. We support local community leaders who have a fundamental understanding of the communities they serve. We help them to build community infrastructure and train men and women to run businesses, schools and clinics. By training people to become active participants in the change taking place within their communities International Needs Canada is developing a global network of leaders who will lead the process of social transformation for future generations.
