Help Denise raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

Thank you for helping the children of Dekpor!

Thank you for opening this page and supporting us as we run the 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 16th to raise funders for the Dekpor food program.  

You can visit the link to see all the amazing work being done with this organization. The Dekpor School Development Organisation  

How your donation is used $165 gives breakfast and lunch every school day AND health care AND summer school fees paid for 1 child for a year!!!!!

We are so proud to support an organization that can say that only 0.75% of the funds are used for admin fees and all the rest go directly to the people.  Last year, we were so thrilled to hear that the young man our family supported finish apprentice schooling at the top of his class and now is opened his own small business to support himself and his family. 

We understand the current times are not easy but would be so grateful for even $5 to a cause that means so much to our family but more so, has such a significant positive impact on the families that live in this small village. 

The fundraising platform is Canadian dollars and requires a minimum donation of $5 CAD, and tax receipts will be issued for $25 or more.  

Thank you for your generosity, kindness and helping us reach our goal to support at least 10 children (financial goal of $1650).

Please reach out if you have any questions or issues with donating online.

With gratitude, 

Matt, Denise, Kaya and Lilia



Dekpor School Development Organisation = hard-working volunteers improving: education, sanitation, clean water, nutrition, health, sponsorships, business start-ups, and crop diversity in rural Ghana.

Funds raised at this event are what allow us to run our food programme.  Breakfast and lunch are served to 150 students at school, but, gee, we'd love to add even more of the 1000 students to the list of recipients! 

You, too, can be part of something wonderful and SEE your fundraising efforts actually MAKE a DIFFERENCE! Give generously.  Every single dollar truly helps!

                  Just to give you an idea of your impact: 

                   $50 feeds a child for 4 months

                   $165 gives breakfast and lunch every school day + health care + summer school fees paid for 1 child for a year!

                    Please know that we are grateful for ANY amount given!
