Amistad is a registered nonprofit organization in Canada whose mission it is to improve the lives of Mexicans in need through better health, education and social justice. It is an all-volunteer organization consisting of Canadians who spend time in Mexico.
Amistad Canada provides Canadians with a charitable framework within which they can more effectively lend a hand to those in need. To that end, Amistad Canada undertakes projects with local community-based partners to address and help close gaps in services.
On Canada Day, July 1, 2019 we began our relationship with Amistad. MeC Board Member Stephen Bresolin from Ottawa, Canada is our Amistad Project Chair.
If you are a Canadian anywhere in the world, you can make a donation and receive a tax related receipt by visiting Amistad Canada. Please be sure to specify Mujeres en Cambio as your donation recipient.
