many things to many people
Elephant Thoughts supports teachers in creating change, both in Canada and abroad. We are a registered Canadian charity, founded in 2002 by a group of teachers, principals and professional educators. We are many things: a new form of charity built on principles of self-reliance and self-sustenance; a source of educational programs and solutions in the classroom and beyond; and a force for sustainable change in education both in Indigenous communities here and around the world. Elephant Thoughts works with schools across Canada including more than 100 Indigenous schools in communities annually. We started out as a Global Development Organization and to this day we continue to support projects in countries like Nepal, India, Nicaragua, Tanzania and many others all through Child Freedom Project.
