ADVOCATE

CBM is committed to helping people become passionate disciples of Christ in their neighbourhoods, in our country and around the world. Our programs are designed to assist church growth through learning, being and going.

We encourage using short-term mission (STM) trips as a tool to help churches and individuals go deeper in their understanding and experience of global realities. STM volunteers work alongside our field staff and national partners to share God’s love in word and deed. Besides the skills they bring, they also bring encouragement as they walk in solidarity with the people they will serve.

She Matters

She Matters is a multi-year campaign for gender equity – to educate, equip and empower girls and women who have the potential to be the greatest influencers for change in their families and communities, through raising funds and awareness. By addressing social injustices like gender bias in education, equal opportunity for skills and job training, as well as enhanced learning and leadership opportunities to empower women leaders, we are helping transform her life and her family’s future through She Matters.

Good Soil

Nearly one person in nine in the world doesn’t get enough to eat, and over half of them are farmers.

WHY GOOD SOIL?

Agricultural development has declined in importance in Canada’s aid budget. Other countries look to Canada’s example. We urge our government to take a leadership role within the G8 by increasing support to those in our world most in need of assistance, such as small-scale farmers.

WHY SMALL-SCALE FARMERS?

Small-scale farmers, or smallholders, make up the vast majority of farmers in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Despite the fact that they are food producers, many of them are food insecure. They are disadvantaged by degraded soils, uncertain climate, weak market position, and more. Many of these problems can be overcome with appropriate investment in extension, finance, infrastructure and value chains.
