Patrick Canagasingham accepted the role of CEO at Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) just over two years ago to pursue his passion for championing human rights and protecting the needs of vulnerable children. He reveals this and more in the video below.

“There are people facing real challenges, and we as an organization have a real opportunity to make a difference,” Canagasingham says in the video. “People still need us. Our mission is still very relevant, and that’s what keeps me going.”

His wife echoes this thought as she describes her support for her husband’s work. “We won’t change the world overnight, but we can make a difference one person at a time,” she says.

Watch the video below to see why the couple decided to move to Canada to pursue their mission with Christian Children’s Fund of Canada.

ABOUT CHILDREN BELIEVE (formerly Christian Children's Fund of Canada):

Children Believe works globally to empower children to dream fearlessly, stand up for what they believe in — and be heard. For nearly 60 years, we’ve brought together brave young dreamers, caring supporters and partners, and unabashed idealists. Together, we’re driven by a common belief: creating access to education — inside and outside of classrooms — is the most powerful tool children can use to change their world.
