Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada (CDF) is our Charity of Choice!

Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada (CDF) Our Charity of Choice.

CDF, in partnership with Canadian Co-operative Association (CCA), helps people to work their way out of poverty we have seen it for ourselves. Like the 440 disabled workers in the Philippines. Their co-op jobs mean the difference between a life of dignity, supporting themselves and their families, and a life of supreme indignity, many begging on the streets to sustain a miserable life of poverty. Last year the funds contributed helped over 2.6 million families in 15 countries. Over the last four years, credit union members in Africa and Asia accumulated $140M in savings and this is fueling economic and social development in the community – development with lasting results with the help of CDF/CCA. Please support us and help these families and their communities. For more information see CCA or CDF

Can hardly believe that 2-weeks from today Lydia & I will on a plane heading to Tanzania to meet our climbing team.    Still focussed on training - 3 more boot camps to go and lots more kilometers of walking.  Very heartening to get so much support from colleagues, family and friends - our fundraising target is within reach!  And here's our destination.
