You can contribute to the eradication of poverty and change the lives of women and girls in vulnerable communities.
STANDING UNITED ACROSS BORDERS
As partners brace for the onset of COVID-19 in their communities, Crossroads has suspended international travel.
Volunteer safety and security are our priority. We are pleased to announce that our volunteers have returned to Canada. After self-isolating for two weeks following their travel back home, volunteers are all reporting good health.
There are reported cases in Africa in the countries where we operate and we are continuing to monitor closely. Program members are reaching out to local partners and we are charting a course together to adapt our program in face of COVID-19 and to plan for the future. To learn more subscribe to our e-bulletin.
Already we are planning new ways Canadians can reengage. As soon as it is safe to travel, we will resume our volunteer collaboration in the communities we serve. You can see upcoming opportunities. We will then launch the selection process to continue the essential work we are doing with women, men, girls and boys to build One World.
