Mission Statement

Creating a self-sustaining generation of youth and young adults by providing underprivileged children and youth with the necessary materials to help them thrive academically

Description

The Canadian Foundation for Development and Empowerment (CFDE) strives to create immediate, long-lasting changes by assisting children, youth, and young adults in operating at their highest potential.

Our mission is to free youth from social and financial barriers by providing school materials, information on community resources, counselling, and other personal support services in order to help those in need. Along with supporting students as they continue education, we also assist young people who have discontinued their schooling. We aim to help students reintroduce themselves into school or provide them with resources to explore and begin vocational training.

CFDE is working on projects that focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Mathematics, Engineering). With advancements throughout the world moving at an extremely fast pace, STEM fields are becoming increasingly crucial. Our projects strive to get young people, especially young women, Indigenous youth, and youth who have discontinued schooling, interested in these subjects. Participation in STEM will ensure their educational journey has many options that can lead to careers in fields relevant to the world's ongoing developments.
