My Message

Join us on our adventure....our family will be moving to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for one year. We are very excited and feel extremely fortunate to have this opportunity. Mike and Anj will be volunteer physicians working with Cuso International and their partner organization TAAAC. Aysha will be starting her first year of high school and Sunil will be entering grade six. It will be quite the change for us; moving from Wawa, population three thousand to Addis Ababa, population almost 3 million! When we started looking into overseas work, it was surprisingly difficult to find work we thought would be "meaningful" . Then we came across Cuso International who are an inspiring organization and we felt that their values and beliefs matched with our own. Cuso int'l sends volunteers to countries around the world to build and share skills. They collaborate with developing world partners to identify areas of greatest need, and then develop strategic volunteer positions (not the other way around). Volunteers are matched to placements that meet the direct requests of overseas partners. As a result, volunteers work on long-term, sustainable solutions. In spite of the obstacles facing them, people in every corner of the developing world are building better futures for their communities. Cuso Int'l . believes that lasting change requires not just a financial investment, but also a human investment. Our goal is to raise $5000.00 to support volunteer sending through Cuso International. Money donated is used to support continuing projects (the money doesn't go to us :)) All gifts are tax deductible in both Canada and the U.S, and are leveraged 9:1 by CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency). Every dollar you donate is leveraged into 10. For more information please visit Cuso International's website, link on the left side. Thanks in advance for your support!
