Board of Directors

Message from the Board of Directors

We, the Board of Directors of People to People Aid Organization (P2P), would like to express our tremendous appreciation and sincere gratitude for your support.

Over the years, your unfailing support has enabled us to provide vital support to orphans and vulnerable children in Ethiopia.  Because of your continuing support, we have increased the number of children under our care from 22 in 2002 to 200 effective January 2015. Your support provides the food, shelter, medical care and other assistance they need to attend and succeed in school.  P2P also provided educational services to hundreds of vulnerable children.

P2P also continues to organize the annual X-Mass party and picnic that is attended by orphans and vulnerable children. For many of these children, this annual event is a reminder and source of hope that there are people who care for them.

P2P has also carried out a number of grass roots educational activities in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA)to disseminate awareness about HIV/AIDS. It has played an active role in the effort to break the silence about AIDS and combat the stigma attached associated with it.

In carrying out its activities, P2P has fostered partnerships with faith organizations, community organizations, youth/student groups and community media.

To our sponsors, supporters and members who contributed to our fund-raising events, we say thank you for making a difference in the lives of our orphans. You are the embodiment of the Canadian tradition of extending a helping hand to those less fortunate than ourselves.

We would also like to express our appreciation to our members and volunteers who sacrificed countless hours of volunteer work to make all our events a success.

We would like to convey the tremendous gratitude expressed by the children we support and their guardians.

As an organization largely run by volunteers, P2P has accomplished a lot thanks to the strong community support it enjoys.

Thank You!!!! Thank You!!! Thank You!!!
