INF Canada

INF Canada empowers Nepal’s poorest people through life-changing health and community development work that is distinctively shaped by INF’s Christian identity and values.

News from INF Canada

The INF Canada Board agreed on April 22, 2017 to transfer a grant of upwards of 70 thousand dollars to contribute to the Grace Project in Western Nepal, a multifaceted approach to impact individuals with disabilities who were affected by the 2015 earthquake.

In this empowering project, INF Canada in collaboration with INF Nepal hopes to contribute to infrastructure development, volunteer capacity building, micro financing, education, and support for complex medical needs.

The official agreement was recently signed in Pokhara, as seen in this photo with Dr. Ganga (Prem) Subedi, INF Nepal Executive Director and Mr. Alastair Seaman, INF International Director.

How you can help

We need you! The work of INF Canada is carried out by a team of volunteers with administrative and logistical support from INF’s Kathmandu office. We are actively looking and praying for volunteers in Canada to join our team, including:

  • Committed individual with financial expertise to serve on the board as treasurer
  • Communicators who are excited to tell the stories of what God is doing in INF and Nepal; online, through social media and to groups and individuals
  • Prayer mobilizers
  • Networkers who can help us connect with people who’d love to know about and support our work
  • Strategic thinkers, organizers and administrators

If you are interested in any of these roles or are simply excited by the vision but not sure yet how you can help then we’d love to hear from you! Please get in touch.
