CanScribe Giving Back
It is important to everyone at CanScribe that we support our students and graduates, along with our local and global communities. CanScribe giving back to our local communities is truly a part of our core values. CanScribe has an internal donation match project to support our team in their charitable donations. This program matches donations made to charitable organizations as selected by the team member. Below you can learn more about the initiatives CanScribe and its team supports.
How Our Organization Gives Back
Her InternationalCanScribe supports Her International, an organization that helps women succeed in many areas from business, to education, and learning. Below are some images of a school that was built in Nepal, with the help of many generous donors and volunteers, including our own CEO, Colleen Chapman, and our Curriculum Development Manager, Jamie Podmorow. CanScribe also supports Her International's microloan project to assist women in starting their own businesses in Nepal.
Random Acts of KindnessAnnually, CanScribe supports its own Random Acts of Kindness. Over the years this has come in many different forms. Most recently, during the pandemic, each team member was tasked with surprising a random person with a large cash donation. Some people left $100 tips for a $20 meal, others anonymously paid for other's groceries at the store. This program created internally is to support our local communities across Canada.
March, 2022 | Micro-Loan Story
Chameli Chaudhary is a member of Indreni Mothers' Group. She is also ex-Kamlahari (ex-indentured slave). The family moved back to Nepal from India, and with the help of HER and Creating Possibilities Nepal, her daughters can regularly attend school. Chameli, who joined the mother group in 2013, also takes literacy classes.
With the help of a micro-loan she received through CanScribe, Chameli is able to raise pigs and make local alcohol. Her business has allowed her family to stay in Nepal, which makes them very happy. If not for this opportunity, the family could not survive in Nepal and they would have had to return to India for labor work.
Chameli is proud to say she is an active businesswoman.
