Give a gift with meaning!
The Gifts of Change catalogue supports marginalized communities across Canada and around the world.
Not only is giving a gift from our catalogue unique, but you can be sure your gifts will be used to carry out life-changing programs that are responding to the needs of people affected by poverty, hunger, natural disasters and conflict.
Gifts of Change 2021-2022
We have plenty of life-changing gifts to offer:
Sowing the Seeds of Food Security (PWAGR01)
Subsistence farmers in developing countries work hard on small plots of land to provide food for their families. You can help farmers learn to improve crops, conserve resources and sell their goods—providing food for today and an income for the future.
From Sickness to Strength (PWHEA01)
Preventable illnesses and inadequate access to primary health care impact many in the developing world. Your gifts help bring medical care and supplies to remote villages, tackle disease and malnourishment, and empower communities to prevent the spread of illness.
Empowered to Prosper (PWHR01)
PWS&D works to build sustainable livelihoods by empowering families to meet their basic needs and advocate for their rights. Your gifts will help heal injustices, encourage self-reliance and promote equal opportunity for all.
A Classroom for Every Child (PWEDU01)
Education is one of the most crucial tools in breaking cycles of poverty, but over 260 million children—the majority of whom are girls—don’t have the opportunity to go to school. By opening classroom doors, providing necessary supplies and delivering training for teachers, your gifts will help children reach their full potential.
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (PWH20)
Help a community access clean, safe drinking water, and appropriate sanitation and hygiene support to improve health, enhance quality of life and achieve lasting change.
Responding to Emergencies (PWEMRG01)
With over 82 million people forcibly displaced and 768 million without enough food to eat every day, PWS&D’s emergency response is more critical than ever. Help provide immediate relief (including food, shelter, and water and sanitation), mental health support and long-term rehabilitation for people in crisis.
It is important to note that:
- Your gift will help our partners carry out the overall goals of the program;
- Actual costs may vary depending on current and local market conditions;
- In the event that gifts received exceed project requirements, or if programs or circumstances change, donations will be directed to programs with a similar intent or location.
