HOPE sharing the burden and lifting the load

“Nobody cares what you know till they know that you care”. There is a profound lack of hope found within northern communities in Canada. Lack of hope leads to a lack of purpose and despair and results in poverty leading to self harm and many negative impacts. Everyone needs hope to survive and True North Aid seeks to provide any measure of hope we can through various hope projects & initiatives to simply demonstrate that we haven’t forgotten our First Peoples and opens the door to relationship, dialogue, trust and understanding.
