ANCOP International Canada, Inc. is a duly registered Canadian charity dedicated to uplift the lives of poor families in developing countries through shelter, child education, and humanitarian relief. We aim to restore the poor’s hope and dignity, organizing them into sustainable and self-reliant communities through livelihood assistance, values formation, and community empowerment.
Currently we operate in the Philippines, India, Indonesia and several countries in Africa including Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Uganda. We are primarily supported by donation from individuals, groups, and corporate partners.
ANCOP, an acronym for “Answer the Cry Of the Poor”, is a non-profit founded by Couples for Christ (CFC). CFC is a global lay organization recognized by Vatican for its work on the renewal and strengthening of Christian family life and values. It is present in over 100 countries around the world.
Meet the Team
Our team is composed of only a few employees, but also joining them are many generous volunteers from across Canada who offer their time, talent, and treasure to help us answer the cry of the poor.
How We Work
We work alongside ANCOP in the Philippines as the top supporter and financial contributor to the mission. Our offices span across Canada from Toronto (our Canadian headquarters) to Calgary, Regina, Ft. McMurray, and Vancouver. We are greatly supported by Couples for Christ and its family ministries, and our partners, in all of our fundraising efforts. And of course, none of this would be possible without the grace of God, and the generosity of all our donors and supporters.
We answer the cry of the poor through effective child education and community development programs, anchored on values formation.
We generate a cadre of volunteers, witnessing to the ideals of loving God and neighbor, and putting faith into action.
We effectively communicate our work, generating awareness and interest on the plight of the poor, spurring a meaningful response to their needs.
We help transform the lives of poor children & their families, helping restore hope and dignity.
