The Angel Foundation For Learning

The Angel Foundation for Learning is a charitable organization that serves the needs of more than 90,000 students in the City of Toronto. Through the generosity and compassion of cor­porate sponsors and individual donors, we help children and families who are experiencing financial hardships.

Given that one quarter of children in Toronto are living in poverty, our mandate is to ensure that all students have access to the supports they need to fully participate in all education opportunities, and have equal opportunities for success. AFLToronto provides funding for student nutrition programs, school trips and leadership opportunities, school apparel, emergency funding to offset the cost of everything from basic every-day food and living essentials to short-term accommodation, transportation to medical appointments, optical care and dental treatments as the result of at school accidents, and bursaries.

LOVE (Quebec)

LOVE was founded in 1993 by Sheila (Twinkle) Rudberg. Following the death of her husband by a 14-year old boy, Twinkle came to see that the youth himself was a victim of violence. Inspired to end the cycle of violence in the lives of young people, Twinkle enlisted the support of passionate members of the Montreal community to spark LOVE's first flames.

What started as a small, grassroots, youth photojournalism project running out of the basement of Montreal's Dawson College soon blossomed into a well-established national program, warmly recognized by governments, schools, corporate and community organizations for the meaningful impact it was having on young people. LOVE's programs aim to help youth thrive through workshops and activities that help develop their emotional intelligence, their confidence, their resilience as well as their leadership skills, all the while creating safe spaces for youth across Quebec and beyond. LOVE currently runs programs across Canada in Quebec, British Columbia and Nova Scotia.
