Our Goal to create a $2,000,000 self-sustaining education award for two young adults per year.

Niagara farmers employ 4,000 migrant farm workers each year. Many of these workers return every year spending most of their working lives in Canada, leaving family in order to provide them a better life. It is time Niagara gives back to this forgotten community and give the gift of education to their children.

Tuition, books, transportation and
living expenses
are covered.
