Foundations for Health and Empowerment (F4HE) aims to improve the health and wellbeing, and enhance the equitable development and empowerment, of women, girls, their families, and their communities.
The challenge: An informed and committed global community is crucial to international development efforts. The majority of Canadians say that countries like Canada have a responsibility to help less wealthy nations, but less than half of Canadians say they are knowledgeable about global development – and only one in five donate to the cause.

From classroom resources to traveling exhibits, and from fundraising campaigns to international internship opportunities, we mobilize the best of our country’s skills, expertise, and funds to build a better future for all.
