The goal of the Canadian Rotary Collaboration for International Development's (CRCID) program is to improve the living conditions of disadvantaged groups, especially vulnerable children and girls, in eight developing countries in Central America and in Africa. The program supports eight initiatives in either literacy, education or health (including water and sanitation). CRCID supports sustainable initiatives in developing countries by (1) participating actively in the development and implementation of effective programs that meet the needs of the communities in developing countries; (2) creating and enhancing development awareness in Canada and abroad; (3) building capacity in Canada, and in developing countries; (4) securing human and financial resources; and (5) ensuring sound governance within Canadian and developing country organizations.

Expected results 


Results achieved 

Results achieved as of the end of the project (September 2013) include: (1) scholarship packages were provided to over 19,350 low-income children in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, and 114 educational facilities were constructed or improved; (2) over 2,190 teachers, principals and curriculum officers from the Ministry of Education in Belize completed teacher training; (3) over 1,820 young adults, including physically disabled students, received vocational training in applied skill areas in Cameroon and Honduras; (4) in Uganda and South Africa, 2,373 caregivers were trained to provide psychosocial and basic care to orphans and vulnerable children; (5) in Uganda and Kenya, over 28,000 orphans, vulnerable children and caregivers were given training to improve their hygiene and sanitation practices; and (6) in South Africa, over 3,770 orphans and vulnerable children benefitted from program food assistance. These results are contributing to increasing the number of children and marginalized adults receiving formal learning to continue their studies or gain employment, and to improving the health and well-being of orphans and other vulnerable children.
