ACCESO International appreciates donations at all times of year. However, we are making this special request at this time:

Donate to ACCESO’s 25th Anniversary Fund
To celebrate 25 years of enabling education, we hope you can help us meet our 2021 goal to raise $25,000 dollars from individual donations, and $25,000 more through a virtual edition of the Sounds and Tastes of the Americas. We hope you can help us achieve our goal!

ACCESO School Supplies Drive
Since 2003, ACCESO International has been providing “back to school” educational supplies for children and youth from low income immigrant and refugee families in the Ottawa area. The project is entitled “Solidarity with Students: Making Education More Accessible for New Canadians”.
