S.H.A.R.E. Agriculture Foundation - Providing the most impoverished people a 'Hand Up' not a 'Hand Out'

Agriculture Foundation (also known as S.H.A.R.E.) is a Canadian charity (BN: 13150 7428 RR0001) that provides funding through local partners to agriculturally-based communities in developing countries, with a focus on Central and South America. Our projects are often in the poorest, most isolated communities where projects will have the greatest impact. S.H.A.R.E. provides a “hand-up” to sustainability to increase a community’s capacity to care for itself.
S.H.A.R.E. provides opportunities and resources to help people help themselves.
Using the “Pass On” principle, those helped assist others, thus ensuring healthy communities where people can improve their life through their own efforts.
S.H.A.R.E. enables impoverished agriculturally based communities to improve their quality of life by supporting projects that contribute to economic, social and environmental development and sustainability.
Working with partners situated locally helps eliminate paid staff allowing donation dollars to go farther. Local representation helps S.H.A.R.E. understand the true needs of a community, allowing us to ask, listen and provide with no preconceived ideas.
