WHO WE ARE
CanEducate is a registered Canadian charitable organization independently created by employees of Barrick Gold Corporation. We provide educational sponsorships to impoverished and at-risk children in developing countries. Charitable Registration Number: 81686 0050 RR0001.
WHAT MAKES CANEDUCATE DIFFERENT?
First and foremost, CanEducate is run by a group of volunteers who want your money to go directly to the children who need it most. We keep administrative costs low by delivering our sponsorships through partners with well-established community networks in our target regions.
Many large charities that support student sponsorships in the developing world have administrative costs as high as 20%. They spend a chunk of your donation on elaborate marketing and advertising campaigns.
At CanEducate, our administrative costs are less than 5%, ensuring more of your donation goes directly to the children in need!
