To end poverty one community at a time. 


To graduate communities out of poverty in ten years. 

FH Canada is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to ending poverty – one community at a time. FH Canada walks alongside the most vulnerable communities throughout the developing world as they strive toward sustainability. Recognizing that each community faces unique challenges as well as advantages, FH Canada is committed to an integrated, holistic approach to development including priorities such as agriculture, education, health, and gender equality. 


  • We address the root issues of poverty. Sometimes people get stuck. A community can’t progress until its people understand what is holding them back. Everyone has God-given value and potential so we begin with changing how they see themselves and the world around them. 
  • This is community-owned development. At the core of our activities is our belief in « walking with » rather than « doing for. » Community leaders are intentionally involved in the creation of grassroots solutions to poverty. 
  • We see the big picture. We don’t do just one thing. Ending poverty is complicated and it takes more than food or clean water for a community to thrive. 
  • We hire locally. Over 98% of our 3,000 staff members are citizens of the countries where they work. They’re from there; they get it. 
  • We leave. After about a decade, a community graduates and we transition from coaches to the being on the sidelines. Since 1994, Canadians have helped 63 communities move from being stuck to self-sustaining. These communities are then in turn reaching out to their neighbours. 


  • God is our foundation. We are motivated by Christ’s love to walk with the most vulnerable around the world until they thrive. The Church plays a central role in many of the communities that we work alongside of, and faith is an important part of a sustainable future. 
  • Relationships first. We recognize that people are at the end of every decision and make that responsibility our priority. 
  • Commitment to Service. Helping others is part of our DNA. We apply that philosophy as we walk with communities around the world. 
  • Invest wisely, focusing on results. We strive to make wise, long-term decisions with our generous donations to meet our goal of graduating communities out of poverty in ten years.
