Partners creating change
Power Corporation of Canada
Cuso is proud of its partnership with Power Corporation of Canada. With their support, we are directing resources, knowledge and expertise here at home. The Canadian Program, which launched in 2017, helps Indigenous communities address low graduation rates, improve education outcomes and promote truth and reconciliation with non-Indigenous citizens. Northern Distance Learning gives students access to courses and teachers outside their communities. To date, Cuso has placed 50 volunteers in 12 communities.
Rotary International District 7070
Rotary International District 7070 was instrumental in maximizing the reach of our Midwives Save Lives program. Their $45,000 donation helped fund the purchase of essential birthing equipment for midwives in remote areas of Ethiopia. When coupled with the 14 to 1 funding match made possible by the Government of Canada, the Rotarians contribution represents one of the largest donations to Cuso’s midwifery program.
