VIDEA was established as a non-profit organization in 1977 to “inspire thought and action on global issues”. Based in Victoria, reaching across BC and Canada, VIDEA actively involves youth, educators, and community partners in the development and implementation of global education and engagement initiatives.
VIDEA facilitates communication, cooperation and strategic networking among Canadian groups working for global justice, peace and sustainable development; supports community to community connections with rural parts of Africa; creates globally focused learning resources; promotes fair trade initiatives; and works in partnership with African organizations such as the WHEAT Trust in South Africa, Women for Change in Zambia, and Mpambo, the African Multiversity, in Uganda, to support development initiatives focused on women’s economic empowerment, community development and education. VIDEA’s Breakthrough for Africa project supports the creation at a community level of sustaining linkages between Canadian and African communities. The Kelowna-Zambia Partnership and the Nelson Kaoma Alliance are part of VIDEA’s Breakthrough for Africa project.
