About A Better World

We are a Central Alberta-based international development
organization, established in 1990. Our management,
executive director and board are 100% volunteers. We
invest in education, health, water, agriculture and income
generation, partnering with local communities to establish
long-term development.100% of project donations go to
projects, with operations funded separately. Our donors can
get directly involved in projects, helping to decide how their
money is spent. They often visit projects and meet local
people to see the returns on their investments.
