The vision for Save A Family Plan was inspired by a growing awareness in the mid 1960s about the immense suffering in India and other nations caused by conditions of extreme poverty. Founded in 1965 by Monsignor Augustine Kandathil, Save A Family Plan is a Canadian-based, registered charity that promotes social justice and sustainable life-changing solutions. Together with supporters across the globe, our mission to partner with the poor for a just world is realized through our two main programs: the Family Development and the Community Development Program.
Our trained on-the-ground staff work in collaboration with families from any caste, creed, religion or political affiliation, to create personalized and sustainable socio-economical plans. In conjunction with local advocacy groups and community resources, our results-based development programs aim to transform lives through small business initiatives, life skills training, the provision of clean water, sanitation, safe housing, and more.
