About international Teams Canada
International Teams Canada Inc. (iTeams Canada) is a growing, innovative Christian charity dedicated to meeting the physical and spiritual needs of widows, orphans, and refugees around the globe.
Part of a wider alliance of affiliated national offices providing leadership around the world, iTeams Canada has programs in Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, Asia and Canada. Our work is always accomplished in partnership with churches, businesses, and grassroots networks of passionate people investing their time, resources, and abilities.
With volunteer program champions in Canada, we empower churches and indigenous leaders to transform communities in need through sustainable projects that will, over time, break the cycle of poverty. In some places we provide for the necessities of life, like food, clean water, and shelter. In others, we work in conjunction with our partners to ensure access to school by providing school fees, building new schools, training teachers and after-school tutors, and offering vocational training and income generation. In other areas, experienced church leaders and pastors help in training of hundreds of pastors and evangelists each year.
Our mission is to bring together indigenous leaders and Canadian churches, to help widows, orphans, and refugees. To that end, we provide infrastructure, expertise, training, and services to our partners and programs as we work together to make our vision a reality: lives and communities transformed by the power of God. Our ministry model differs from that of most modern mission organizations in that we do not seek to do the work ourselves, but rather to add velocity to the work of wise leaders with a vision to develop next-generation leaders. Together they are the people best positioned to bring about the greatest transformation.
As a Christ-centred organization, we value the poor, the church, and the indigenous leader. We aspire to excellence through measurable performance and good stewardship. We are a relational organization, characterized by integrity and innovation.
