Our story began during an international service trip...
From the beginning
When participating on an international service trip to Guatemala, the founders of this initiative had the opportunity to communicate with local adolescence about what they wanted to do in the future. Often the response was that they did not have the proper education or understanding of the material being taught, thus, they are unable to pursue their dreams. Keeping this in mind upon returning to Canada, newcomers to the country could potentially experience similar difficulties. This initiative was created to solve this problem.
The founders of this organization seen above are: Rohan Kanti (left), Zayd Alameddine (center), and Ibrahim Ayorinde (right)
