Warm greetings to you. I just came back from my country of origin where I have witnessed the lack of school furniture in several rural schools on the Bolivian high plateau.
Frontiers Foundation is now seeking donations to allow the villagers on Bolivia’s high plateau (Altiplano) to purchase lumber and manufacture hexagonal tables and smaller chairs (as shown above) for children attending the rural schools.
The cost of one hexagonal table and 6 chairs is US$100 and will greatly enhance the education of these children.
Please also forward this appeal to your friends who might be inclined to give their helping hand to Bolivia. There is a strong potential that monies raised through this campaign will be matched 3 to 1 by the Canadian International Development Agency.Submitted by tupac on September 13, 2012 - 9:53pm.
On Thursday June 29, our Annual Breakfast was a huge success with 120 attendees in the Flora McCrea Hall at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church. As usual our faithful Batchawana Bay friends Iolene and Olaf Bjornaa donated and cooked fresh pickerel and trout for everyone.Submitted by tupac on July 7, 2012 - 6:36am.
The erection of a pyramid, a Wigwam or any structure is no longer permitted at Parliament Hill demonstrations, so on March 1, 2012 we had to manage with a big circle at the Eternal Flame. We prayed and pleaded for safe, warm, enduring and affordable Canadian housing to replace U.S. built F-35 warplanes and more prisons as a federal budget priority. Terrible winter weather kept the expected strong Algonquin contingent snowbound, and a mechanical breakdown stranded our Canada Coach charter from Toronto for 1 ½ hours near Kingston. That bus was carrying Frontiers Foundation Executive Director Marco A. Guzman, Project Amik Residents Committee President Mike MacTague, several FF and NFARC Board Directors, Aboriginal people from Council Fire, Native Women’s Resource Centre, Wigwamen Terrace and key speaker Anglican Archbishop Terry Finlay (Retired). Bus was also carrying our protest signs and miniature houses; replacement bus finally arrived at 1:20 p.m. for last twenty minutes of rally.
Following hand drumming and singing by Michelle Penney plus greetings and smudging by Odawa Native Friendship Centre’s Executive Director Micheal Lascelles, Event Hostess and MC Olivia Chow welcomed everyone with powerful words declaring wholehearted NDP support for our cause and her intention to prioritize it in the business of the House.
Our December 15, 2011 Christmas party was acclaimed as best-ever, with New Frontiers Aboriginal Residential Corporation (NFARC), Frontiers Foundation and Project Amik Residents Committee (PARC) all pitching in for the food and fun. Le Petit Chaperon Rouge’s beautiful decorations included a striking winter scene mural.Submitted by tupac on December 21, 2011 - 9:47pm.
Frontiers Foundation’s Vision Quest Strategic Planning and Annual General Meeting was held on November 12th and 13th in Toronto at the Project Amik Community Room with the Board, Operation Beaver, staff, members and guests.

Frontiers Foundation would like to thank First Air for its continuing support for our Northwest Territories program. Its contributions have been key in enabling us to send our volunteers to northern communities in need.
As part of our fund-raising efforts, we are offering beautiful Christmas cards.
These cards come in two varieties, either with traditional Christmas greetings included or blank so that you can write your own message for the season. These cards are perfect to send to your loved ones and you can use them as an opportunity to upkeep your writing skills. The two available prints are as follows:
1. ‘Building a home for the spirit’ by Ojibwa artist Doug Fox.
2. ‘Aymara girl carrying peace swallows on earth’ by Bolivian artist Sylvia Peñaloza
