Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) shares God's love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice.
It's been 100 years since we first started responding to basic human needs in southern Russia (present-day Ukraine). Now, we continue to work for relief, development and peace all over the world.
To mark 100 years of sharing God’s love and compassion, and your generosity and partnership through the decades, we invite you to explore stories from MCC’s decades of work around the world.
A gift to where needed most supports the breadth of MCC’s work – meeting urgent needs and building stronger, healthier communities. Give today.
Housed by Mennonite Central Committee's Indigenous Neighbours program, Niska Artisans took flight in 2007 and supports Indigenous artisans in First Nations and communities stretching across northeastern Ontario. The Niska program is hosted on the traditional Lands of the Cree and Anishinaabe peoples, today Mattagami, Flying Post, Matachewan and Wahgoshig. This Land is part of Treaty 9, James Bay Treaty 1905/06.
Niska products are one-of-a-kind, made with traditional techniques, quality materials, and dedication.
This fair trade program seeks to both educate patrons about the unique cultures in Ontario’s far north and works to preserve a way of life that is being lost. “Niska” is Cree for goose; the life-giver for hunters in northern First Nations.
“The Artisans strive to keep their culture and traditions alive through their hand-made products and teaching from their ancestors and elders.”
Thank you to our partners.
