“For the Kids” Annual Campaign

Our annual year-end For The Kids campaign has begun. The campaign raises the funds necessary to ensure that the kids enrolled in extracurricular activities for 2023 have the funding needed from We Are The Villagers (WATV).

When WATV sponsors a child in their selected program (sports, education, cultural, or recreation), we commit to them until their family is capable of affording the fees themselves. This follows the notion that learning a skill or passion takes many years of dedication and pursuit.

Our goal this year is to raise $20,000+ in November and December for our 2023 programs. To meet this goal, we need the community to help. WATV currently strives to place over 600 children in 27 local communities.  With your help, we can do it!

Who We Are

We Are The Villagers has made it our mission to help families and their children participate in extracurricular activities of interest to them. Whether sports, music, art or other special interests, we sponsor children in need so that they may take part in these activities without being restricted by registration fees and equipment costs.

Our Inspiration

It has been said that to raise a child, it takes a village. We believe that we all have a responsibility towards the children of our community to nurture and inspire them in their pursuits, fostering an environment where the coming generation can be confident, happy and fulfilled. It is our desire to help families find the means to assist their children pursue their interests, meet and interact with other children and increase joy in their daily lives.

How Does This Help?

All too often, economic struggles can constrain a family’s ability to provide their children with opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities. Sports, arts and organizations such as Scouting and Girl Guides often have fees associated with them, as well as equipment costs which can be daunting for low income families, or large families with multiple children. We Are The Villagers sponsors families, paying registration fees and covering equipment costs so that any child can have the chance to do the thing they love to do.
