OUR APPROACH

The Foundation raises funds to create initiatives that will allow First Nations youth to enjoy positive experiences.

This is not a new situation: First Nations are facing unbearable social issues. At the beginning of the chain, there is poverty, food insecurity, illness, and poor access to quality education. At the end of it, there are dramatic realities like violence, alcoholism, and pathological gambling. The New Pathways Foundation was created to tackle the issues associated with poverty and social exclusion.
