We invite you to join hands with us and transform lives in the village of Igoma.
The extent to which we can help our friends in Igoma is directly dependent on money received through fundraising and donations. SIP is run by unpaid volunteers in Canada and we keep our administration costs to a minimum, so that approximately 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to the work in Igoma. We are a registered charity in Canada and comply with all legal and fiscal requirements. Financial details can be accessed on the Canada Revenue Agency website.

Sponsor a Child
When you sponsor a child, you provide access to basic necessities such as food, health care and education. You will also become part of that child’s life and receive regular updates, as well as being able to connect with him or her. Child sponsors commit to a recurring, tax-deductible $35 monthly payment, 100% of which goes directly to the child sponsorship program in Igoma.
Consider gathering friends, co-workers or classmates to raise funds for SIP or to make a group donation. Groups from Stouffville – like 100 Kids Who Care– have made and sold bracelets, collected money in donation boxes and gathered school supplies. Every dollar raised is greatly appreciated.
Participate in our Annual Fundraiser
Our main fundraising event is an annual dinner and auction held in October in Stouffville. We invite you to buy a ticket, get caught up on what’s going on at SIP and open your wallets for a good cause.
If you have an item or services that you can contribute for our silent or live auction, we’d also love to hear from you.
All SIP members in Canada are unpaid volunteers. We always welcome new volunteers to share ideas, help raise funds, assist with event planning, or become part of the SIP Canada board.
Every one or two years, we also organize teams to travel to Igoma to meet the wonderful people there, see how SIP is changing lives, and help out on projects. Trip participants must cover their own costs.
