Sahakarini Supports Projects
Projects are the heart of Sahakarini’s mandate. We are always looking for opportunities to work with trusted local partners in developing countries. We have found over the years that the kinds of projects which give the most benefit to the vulnerable and marginalized are those which combine a committed and efficient local partner with the hard work and motivation of those who benefit from the project. One of the constants in our projects outlines below is the hard work, commitment and motivation of the beneficiaries.

Project News in Brief

Tanzania: Project SHINE
Project SHINE is a collaborative research project between the University of Calgary (Global Health and International Partnerships) and the Catholic University of Health and Allied Sciences in Tanzania. The project aims to build the capacity of youth and communities to develop and sustain locally relevant strategies to prevent parasitic infection and improve sanitation and hygiene in Ngorongoro Conservation Area schools and communities.
As part of its work, SHINE has formed a working relationship with the Canmore-based Rocky Mountain Soap Company to teach community members to make high quality soap. An article about the soap-making project can be found in the Rocky Mountain Outlook. https://sahakarini.org/partners-projects/tanzania-project-shine/
India: Pipal Tree Children’s College
Through one of our board members, Professor Varghese Manaloor, University of Alberta. Augustana Campus, we were introduced to Pipal Tree, a non-profit trust established in 1984.
