About Us

 Kids Canada (Kids Can) and Uganda Kids Canada (U Kids Can)  kids helping kids  -crossing all cultural and economic borders for fun!

KIDS CANADA -kids helping kids.
We connect schools and organizations to break through the glass walls of cultural stereotypes, gender and racial discrimination, dependency and entitlement -crossing all cultural and economic borders for fun. We educate and empower our kids beyond text books and school walls through cultural exchanges of arts and technology. Because we believe that a kids’ home life impacts their success in and out of school, we support the family unit as whole by kick starting micro businesses and sustainable health and nutritional projects. Kids are often seen as vulnerable and dependent but we see them as they are; they inspire, play and work hard at everything that is thrown their way.

We are non-denominational and non-political, we are supporters of all human rights and we believe in transparency and accountability -we demand nothing less from those we move with. Tell us how we can help each other –Please do not come to us for hand outs.Uganda Kids Canada is a Kids Canada initiative that connects kids in both Canada and Uganda -for now. Heartfelt thanks to all of our kids, supporters, mentors and donors – we can not do all that we do without each and every one of you!

IT TAKES A VILLAGE  

We believe in the adage that “it takes a village to raise a child.”  Every child is unique and many organizations cannot support the needs of every child due to limited resources.   Kids Canada (KC) and Uganda Kids Canada (UKC), a Kids Canada initiative, are organizations that believe in hand ups not handouts.  By helping to connect schools and organizations in Uganda and in Canada, no kid is left behind.
