Jan. 29, 2007: More selflessly doing good

Canadian taxpayers might be interested in how Canadians' tax money funds various groups purporting to do good. There is funding for foreign students to encourage them to come to Canada to study - link at the bottom of this post. I noted in one or more of these programs that there is concern over women's rights ... abroad ... Meanwhile at home, skirting around certain abuses of women in Canada ... in certain communities ... is the Status of Women - SoW, which, for example, has not been vocal about exposing Canadian instances of cliterectomy, honour killing, plural marriage ... but that would mean ... well, what groups would they discomfit were they to speak out? Reason enough, says the tabby cat, for the selflessly doing good groups to concentrate on the poor and downtrodden elsewhere, in Latin America or South America, for instance. But there are other organizations devoted to ... well, whatever they concentrate on. Read on.


More selflessly doing good -- organizations, NGO's, institutes, non-profits, university departments, forums, international network(s), professional association(s), training institute(s), community colleges, coordinating committee, umbrella organization for Canada's international education agenda [webpage dated ] ... and the list of those doing good goes on and on. -- under the aegis of CIDA's Office for Democratic Governance -- or -- check here
