Mona Foundation Canada

We are a global education community, supporting grassroots initiatives that provide education to all children, increase opportunities for women and girls, and emphasize service to the community.

Mona Canada

Mona Foundation Canada was formed by a group of Canadians who know and appreciate the valuable mission of Mona Foundation in promoting education and gender equality globally. We also believe that the keys to alleviating poverty are universal education, gender equality, and community building. Mona Foundation Canada is a sister organization to Mona Foundation Seattle. Our relationship is one of consultation, collaboration and mutual reciprocity of two independently constituted yet sister organizations who draw their inspiration from the same source, share common goals, values and guiding principles, and who leverage each other’s experience, resources and learning in the field to optimize impact and effectiveness.

Mona Foundation Canada is a registered Canadian charity. Checks may be sent to Mona Foundation Canada, 226 Wooddale Rd, North Vancouver, BC V7N 1S5.

Why Education? 1 = 10

While in the past several decades we have made progress, poverty still impacts 80% of our world population. World Bank confirm that $1 invested in education and skills equals $10 in economic growth.

Our Guiding Principles

Our approach and framework to development act as a guide and influence the way we think of social action and change. At the heart of this framework lie our beliefs about the nature of human beings.

Program Components

We support program components that ensure students excel academically and ethically to serve and contribute to their communities' sustained positive change.

The Projects We Support

Mona Foundation Canada currently supports three projects: Zunuzi School in Haiti, Barli Institute in India, and Badi School in Panama.

Mona Giving Circles

Giving Circles offer an opportunity for members to take a more hands-on approach to philanthropy - about a project, and then follow its progress to see the impact of their efforts.

Junior Youth Group Helps

A Junior Youth Group in Vancouver was inspired by the stories they heard and decided to support Mona by fundraising for the Barli Institute in India. They chose baking as their platform for service and raised $700!
