INDIGENOUS PEOPLES PARTNERSHIPS
CLUSTER (IPPC)

We listen. We learn. We respond.

SUPPORTING INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES

 IN ONTARIO & MANITOBA

We acknowledge that we are on the traditional lands of the Haudenosaunee
and Anishinaabe people and express our gratitude to them
for allowing us to live and learn on their land.

Welcome to the IPPC

Our partnership with the Indigenous communities is about what the people want and what their priorities are, rather than what we think they need.


We want to listen! We want to help provide assistance for what Indigenous people actually want and understand their priorities, rather than assuming we know what they need.

Know More
IndigenousCommunities
Improve Living Conditions

The Rotary IPPC supports Indigenous communities in Ontario and Manitoba in their self- determined priorities aimed at improving their living conditions and overcoming generations of lack and insufficient affordable and clean living conditions.

High Impact
Projects

When Indigenous communities determine and select projects that impact them and their children positively, we do our best to support their aspirations. This includes access to quality education and the resources necessary for effective learning.

Support Indigenous Women

We support programs that work to improve the health and wellness of Indigenous women including easy access to maternal health information and services and adult literacy programs in a culturally sensitive and effective way.

Art for Aid

The Art for Aid Project is a program under the Canadian registered charity I Love First Peoples. Our combined focus is to improve education for students in remote Indigenous communities in Canada. We are volunteer run and do not receive federal funding. We depend on support from donors and Art for Aid raises funds through our Shopify store “The Art for Aid Shop” to support our demanding shipping and operations budget.


We are very grateful to receive support from the Rotary Indigenous Peoples Partnerships Cluster (IPPC). They have generously donated support to our shipping budget over the last couple of years, donated for the sewing machines as well as having provided a generous measure of materials and transportation support for our pilot project “Sew & Sew Skills Lab” in Natuashish, Northern Newfoundland to the Mushuau Innu School. The Sew & Sew Skills Lab program has now been expanded and includes 4 schools this year with room to expand to a 5th school in 2022’s school year.

We are all tremendously grateful for the support of such good people who believe in what we are working to achieve.
