The unsuspecting weekend of March 4, 2006 held the conception of the non-profit organization ACCESS Charity, three eventful years ago.
Since the initial presentation about the Dominican Republic Exposure Trip at a Brampton church was followed by a collection of over $8,000 three years ago, ACCESS has developed into an active youth-run organization. (Full text from the initial presentation can be read online here.)
In light of their unofficial third anniversary, ACCESS is releasing a 2-minute promotional video.
The video, embedded below, was created by Heads or Tails and tells a brief story about the organization and its roots.

ACCESS: Allowing Children a Chance at Education, Inc. was officially incorporated in the province of Ontario on May 28, 2008. For details on this non-profit status, click here.
Today, ACCESS continues to expand both its international education and local youth involvement projects. ACCESS strives to provide children in the developing world with school uniforms and supplies, giving them the opportunity to obtain an education and successful future. ACCESS also aims to educate youth across North America about relevant issues, youth activism, and about the current situation in the developing world.
ACCESS offers a variety of local programs including Educator Resources, Educational Presentations, Speak Up for Change Youth Blog and Volunteer Opportunities along with international development projects including a Haitian student's university fund, School Supply Drives for Honduran students, and more.
