The Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada (CDF) is a registered charity that aims to help alleviate poverty by building and strengthening financial and non-financial co-ops in developing countries. Working with the Canadian Co-operative Association (CCA) and other partners, CDF helps poor communities fight poverty and create more secure lives through community-owned co-ops in Africa, Asia and the Americas.
CDF raises funds each year to equip men and women in need to build PERMANENT PATHWAYS OUT OF POVERTY. How? By helping them to create their own co-operatives and credit unions – institutions they use to remove the root causes of their poverty. Together, they grow savings, and issue loans to start small businesses. They create jobs and help women realize their full potential. Land becomes fertile again and incomes grow. Families eat better, children stay in school. Their co-op expands and with it, their options for a better life.
Last year alone, CDF helped 3.4 MILLION PEOPLE in 18 COUNTRIES organize 553 CO-OPS. Women ̶ so key to moving their families out of poverty ̶ represent 2.9 million of these new co-op members. These new co-ops are delivering needed services to families in over 900 communities.
