Ekiti Kete Canada is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing educational, medical, and social support to under-privileged people, particularly children and youths from low economic status parents. Through the collection of medical and educational materials and equipment from donors in North America, Ekiti Kete Canada has been able to provide relief materials to hospitals and schools in Ekiti state, Nigeria. Since its formation by a group of concern Ekiti indigenes in Toronto, Canada, Ekiti kete Canada has grown to become the umbrella for interested Canadians with roots in Ekiti state Nigeria. With particular focus on children and youths, our humanitarian programs have touched the lives of many people, both in Canada and in Nigeria. Ekiti Kete Canada cultural development program focuses on youth development by providing educative information and training to enhance their skills and strengthen their interest in cultural performance. Our cultural dance and drama group is unique with membership from different culture.

The annual summer youth camp and “out of town” excursion programs attract dozens of children and youths across the Greater Toronto Area every year. Apart from its purpose of providing supervised avenue to develop local friendship and encourage formation of literacy partners among participants, this program also reduces idleness among the youths, thereby leading to crime reduction in the community. We also put smiles in the faces of many disadvantaged children every Christmas season through a well organized children Christmas party. An average of 150 children and youths benefit from our tangible gift bags from “Santa clause” every year, thus making Christmas a memorable time of fun.

Ekiti Kete Canada is blessed with members that are passionate about the needy. Our dedicated members volunteer their time, resources, finances, and expertise in order for us to be able to fulfill many of our programs. Our community Outreach Program provides counseling and basic materials (food, clothing and shoes) to residents of shelters in Toronto, some of whom are suffering from alcohol or drug addiction.
