Improving the lives of people in need through better health, education and social justice

AMISTAD CANADA is a fully registered charity under Canada's Income Tax Act. Our work is in Mexico, where social services that Canadians take for granted are often unavailable, especially in rural areas. Our projects are implemented in cooperation with Mexican NGOs that have proven track records in providing much needed social services.

We are currently are working with six partners: CASA, La Biblioteca de San Miguel de Allende, Jóvenes Adelante, Rural Education Institute, Children's Art Foundation and Opera de San Miguel. To learn more about any partner, click on the picture associated with its right-hand tab.

You can learn more about John, about what inspired him to make this ride and more on the Bi-Ciclo project page
