The Mikinakoos Children’s Fund connects with communities in four unique ways. Through food security and support, providing items that will allow children to enjoy both the warm and colder times of year, and through the enjoyment of sport, arts and other activities. We also have a way in which we can support emerging needs that might arise that don’t necessarily fit within our program parameters, but there is an apparent need and connection to supporting children living in remote, Northwestern Ontario First Nation communities.
As with all of our work, our programs are an opportunity to supplement and enhance the work that is being carried out in a community. Being a 100% community-led organization allows us to learn and grow with our community partners and never assume anything about the community, without the community.
