About Us

Roots of Change Foundation is an active Alberta-registered charity that has been helping to reduce poverty in Nicaragua since 2005. We collaborate with our partner agent, FUNDACCO, a registered charity in Nicaragua which identifies, proposes, manages, and facilitates projects funded by Roots of Change.  We raise funds in Western Canada by making informative presentations to groups and organizations, engaging the public at meetings and markets, selling artefacts at craft fairs, and hosting gala and family fundraising events. We also partner with schools and other groups who raise funds in support of Roots of Change projects in Nicaragua.
