See the difference
Each year, you will receive a progress report with a new photo of your sponsored child. It will celebrate the positive contribution you’re making through immunizations, new water-access points, community gardens and better toilet facilities.

While we welcome visitors, it is not possible to volunteer through CCFC. If you’re interested in volunteering overseas, we recommend looking into opportunities with World University Service of Canada and Canada World Youth. We also suggest you request the Who's Who in International Development booklet from the Canadian Council for International Co-operation. It lists non-governmental organizations accepting volunteers.
Every February, CCFC sends official donation receipts for income tax purposes. If you have not received the receipt, or need a replacement copy, contact our donor-relations team at 1-800-263-5437.
