Cause We Care
Cause We Care Foundation is a Vancouver-based registered public foundation that raises money to assist frontline organizations that support local single mothers and their children in need. Since 2007, together with generous donors and volunteers, they have assisted single mothers in need in the Lower Mainland through a variety of outreach and funding initiatives. Cause We Care Foundation looks to a mother and child’s potential future. A future that includes a more fulfilled, empowered and independent life. A future that offers opportunities for successful positive change by breaking the cycle of poverty.
The very idea that 45% of our world’s children will almost certainly fail to reach their potential is unthinkable. So we focus on possibilities. If we had a way to meet such children’s most fundamental need for responsive human interaction, enabling them to reach their full potential – the potential that lies within every child – we might begin to see them in a new light. OneSky believes that unlimited potential waits inside every child. For over two decades, OneSky has been a pioneer in high-quality early childhood care and education for vulnerable children as well as a trusted partner of governments across Asia. OneSky’s programs have been recognized for their transformative impact by leading global institutions, foundations, networks and governments.
