About

Developing World Connections is an international development organization that sends resources and volunteers to projects in countries where the need is great. We accept people of all ages and backgrounds. We are a registered non-profit, Canadian charitable organization with no professional, political or religious affiliations.

Since 2005, we have sent more than 2,000 volunteers to work side-by-side with locals on sustainable projects around the world. Our volunteers have built schools, lifeskill centres, trade schools, homes, community latrines and water systems. We work in partnership with non-profit groups in the host country and our projects are chosen by the community to fulfill their needs.

Our vision is for a sustainable, socially-just, peaceful and poverty-free global community where people see the difference they make and the hope they build while working beside each other.

We use donated Aeroplan Miles for our national and international travel needs. We currently work with 10 host partners in Asia, Africa and Latin/South America and we travel to those communities throughout the year to monitor and assess programs and provide project reports.

We also rely on Aeroplan Miles to travel throughout Canada to raise awareness of our projects and to hold team leader training seminars.

Your donation helps DWC grow and allows more donor funds to directly reach our host communities and project beneficiaries.

Thank you for supporting us in our long-term commitment to build hope through sustainable development.
