Description of the organization's activities: The FAAVM Canada (Association fédérale pour le progrès des minorités visibles, AFPVM) is a nonprofit, charitable organization. Our major focus involves using various multifunctional civil rights programmes to help our mostly disadvantaged, underprivileged Canadian minorities as men, women and children. Via the FAAVM multilateral humanitarian systems, and activities, we're able to reach out to these people who are very difficult to reach via more traditional-type programmes. We then use these activities to help improve the quality of life of these disadvantaged peoples, also called the visible minorities. Our all-volunteer network nationwide program is comprised of several components, all having to do with providing meaningful and positive educational, socio-cultural, spiritual, economic and overall human development activities for our mostly economically disadvantaged nationwide and worldwide. A major objective is our use of national and international legally binding humanitarian instruments, norms, precepts and principles in order to intervene at the national level to outreach visible minorities who are often very difficult to otherwise reach. We are then able to impact Canadian minorities in many positive ways. We promote early education, child welfare, gender equality, social justice, global peace and socio economic development, and promote the overall growth and advancement process. We emphasize maximizing positive human potential, drug education/prevention, healthy living, decreased street violence, improved reading and writing skills, and learning to respect others from diverse backgrounds.
Organization's membership or classes of membership: The FAAVM Canada a world class membership organization, affiliating with other global organizations within the American, Asian, European, Middle Eastern, African, Caribbean and Oceanic regions, whereas our membership is client centered, working in partnership, accountability for quality results, dedicated to human dignity, human integrity, financial integrity and cost-effectiveness, inspired and innovative.
