The Camille Kamanzi Foundation (CKF) is a non-profit organization founded in 2018 by Camille Kamanzi, a community organizer and social entrepreneur. The organization is registered as a non-profit in Canada, and is focused on empowering refugees to become self-reliant through direct services and educational programs.
CKF recognizes the challenges that refugees face when displaced from their homes, communities, and countries. The organization is committed to addressing these challenges by providing comprehensive support to refugees in Canada and beyond. Through its direct services, CKF aims to provide refugees with the resources and tools they need to rebuild their lives with dignity and independence.
The direct services offered by CKF include support for basic needs such as food, shelter, and clothing, as well as access to education and training programs. CKF recognizes that education and skills training are essential for refugees to become self-reliant and contribute to their communities. As such, the organization offers a range of educational programs, including language courses, vocational training, and entrepreneurship training.
In addition to its direct services, CKF also advocates for policies and programs that support the rights and well-being of refugees. The organization works with local, national, and international partners to raise awareness about the challenges faced by refugees and to promote solutions that foster inclusion, sustainability, and resilience.
CKF's commitment to empowering refugees to become self-reliant is rooted in the belief that all individuals have the potential to thrive and contribute to their communities. By providing refugees with the support they need to rebuild their lives, CKF is helping to create a more just and equitable world for all.
