It was formed in 1993 by a few dedicated people as a
small registered charity in Belleville, Ontario, Canada.

These projects, which include water capture systems, building schools and recreational facilities, significantly improve the life of aboriginal people in North and Central America. The projects are planned and executed by the local communities in response to the needs expressed by the villagers.  For more information about how projects are selected and completed, see What We Do and Our Philosophy.
