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!

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 (Kids Can) and Uganda Kids Canada (U kids Can), an initiative of Kids Canada, are organizations that believe in hand ups not handouts.  By helping to connect schools and organizations in Uganda and in Canada, no kids are left behind.

In Canada we work with Dundas Junior Public School, First Nations Public School, the Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club In Canada, Queen Alexandra Middle School and Greystones Health Centre. In Uganda we work with, Uganda Kids Canada, Amadinda, Lungujja Community Health Caring Organization, Events Medical Managers, Rwenzori Action for Development, Grassroot Women Development Organization,  Raising Women,  Tiva Water, Uganda and the Uganda Olympic Committee.

Thank you Dundas Jr Public School PENNY AND NICKLE DRIVE for CLEAN WATER


Clean water, nutrition and health continue to be important to Kids Canada.   Kids Can and U Kids Can are the new kids on the block but within our first 17 months we collectively raised funds for  14 sustainable biosand water filtration systems and 5  vegetable and medicinal herb gardens in organizations that have little to no land.  Thank you For your 3Rs Garden project ideas and support John Richard Pendergast. www.recycling.moonfruit.com 

HEALTH CARE   We are so excited to team up with EVENTS MEDICAL MANAGERS  and LUNGUJJA COMMUNITY HEALTH CARING ORGANISATION  in Uganda and GREYSTONES HEALTH in Canada to help educate rural communities and to ensure health care is made accessible to our kids.

HELPING TO REDUCE OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT  This new year promises to be exciting as Kids Canada, Uganda Kids Canada and Dundas Junior Public School join hands with  First Nations school of Toronto to raise funds for sustainable water filtration systems for our friends here in our First Nations communities.  We are also excited to partner with the Uganda Olympic Committee to help reduce our carbon footprint with our water project. Our biosand filtration systems will help reduce the use of plastic water bottles and help conserve our natural resources, wood and coal, presently used to boil water for drinking.
