Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal - Pamela Vaull Starr
Kidscan is a registered charity dedicated to creating positive change in the lives of kids suffering barriers rooted in poverty. Our programs are aimed at giving kids hope and alnernatives to a life of crime and violence. Why do we do this? Because we believe education is a basic human right. And because we believe the world has a duty to ensure all children have equal access to good programs that teach them how to build a better future, how to be a better person and how to be a leader.
We believe education is power.
We believe kids aren't born bad. They're born poor. Too poor to join a hockey team, take ballet lessons or learn to build a robot. Every child dreams about what they want to be when they grow up but for kids living in poverty, those dreams soon die. Feelings of hopelessness set in and kids start to view life on the streets as the only option. They are swallowed up by a world of crime, violence and drugs.
Together we can change this.
We can give kids back their dreams.
We can end wasted lives.
We can help kids step into a better tomorrow.
