"In 2007, I travelled to eastern Africa with McGill University as part of their field studies. Over the course of 10 weeks, we were working in many rural communities, and determined that there was a real need in these areas. When I got back, a bunch of us got together and formed the CanAssist African Relief Trust."
Since 2008, the trust has raised over 500,000$ to help impoverished communities in Eastern Africa to better standards of living. They invest in infrastructure such as water tanks to help improve access to clean drinking water.
