Programs

Aangen’s outreach programs are the soul of our organization.

Each program has naturally developed as a solution based response to community driven needs, both locally and around the world. Our focus and program structure is completely dependent on the need of a community, family or individual at any given moment. Our mission is to provide sustainable solutions to social injustices such as hunger and homelessness.

Aangen is driven by love and motivated by the people we serve and the lives we impact.

"Our call to action is based on the needs of the community, from Toronto to across the globe"

Global

Send A Girl To School

Once girls begin their menstrual cycle, many of them around the world miss one week of school per month due to the lack of running water and no access to sanitary supplies. Aangen's solution: Environmentally conscious menstrual pads that provide an economical and practical solution for girls and women, allowing them to stay in school and go to work.

Come and Eat

Ebe, Nigeria is one of the most impoverished areas in West Africa. Our call to action is to help build a kitchen and dining hall in Ebe, where meals can be prepared daily and where hunger can be healed in the form of a nourishing meal.

One Love - Global

The One Love program was created to support global orphanages. There are no restrictions on who we can serve; we simply rise to action when and where there is a need. Since 2004 we have impacted 15 global orphanages.

Local

Heal Hunger

Aangen’s Heal Hunger Initiative mission is to be a part of a solution towards hunger and food security. As a self-sustained organization Aangen’s goal is to help facilitate the same kind of independence to the people we serve and to the lives we touch. Initiatives under the Heal Hunger program include our Parkdale Community Meal, Friday Night Dinners at the McCormick Cafe and our Kickin' it in the Kitch Workshops.

Families in Need

The Families in Need Program provides personalized emergency relief to people experiencing disadvantaged life situations. Through unconditional support and wraparound services, we are able to walk side by side with a family during their time of adversity and help guide them towards a brighter tomorrow. We help with Housing Connections, Employment, Legal Counselling, Grocery Support, Clothing and hygienic needs. Initiatives under the Families in Need program include Emergency Relief and Hope for the Holidays.

One Love - Local

The One Love program was created to support local shelters, and people experiencing distressed life situations. There are no restrictions on who we can serve; we simply rise to action when and where there is a need. Since 2004 we have impacted over 20 local shelters and touched the lives of countless individuals.
