    Poverty Alleviation

    The Tendaji Charitable Foundation provides programs, services and initiatives that assist in poverty alleviation. The Foundation provides assistance to the people it serves by providing the necessities of life including support for shelter, food, water, and clothing.


    In Canada, the Foundation focuses its poverty alleviation programs on assistance for people who are unhoused or homeless, precariously housed, low income and are marginalized.


    According to the United Nations, about a billion of the world's population lives on less than $2 USD per day. In addition to Canada, a percentage of the Foundation’s poverty alleviation programs will help marginalized children, youth, and women in the developing world.
