Activists Against Poverty in Guyana (AAPG)

Guyana is a country with a huge poverty problem that contributes to the 2nd highest suicide rate in the world. The purpose of this group is to spread awareness in Guyana and Canada about extreme poverty in the least developed areas of the country. This includes mainly the areas in the rainforests as well as Essequibo and villages directly outside the capital, Georgetown. The awareness campaigns include posters, seminars, pamphlets, and websites all designed to urge Guyanese and Canadian citizens to be aware of the large group of impoverished individuals in Guyana. The group also provides aid to those in the aforementioned areas living in poverty through sponsorships from interested persons and corporations. Aid is primarily via cash donations to carefully selected groups and agencies in Guyana working with impoverished villages. We have currently raised thousands of dollars and bettered the lives of hundreds of children!
