SOCIAL IMPACT PROGRAM
Oxfam International's purpose is to help create lasting solutions to the injustice of poverty. We are part of a global movement for change, empowering people to create a future that is secure, just, and free from poverty. We use a combination of rights-based sustainable development programs, public education, campaigns, advocacy, and humanitarian assistance in disasters and conflicts. We challenge the structural causes of the injustice of poverty, and work with allies and partners locally and globally. We are a confederation of affiliates, seeking maximum impact by building on our respective strengths. By working together, we enhance our collective impact and cost effectiveness, and contribute to a just world without poverty.
Yonge Street Mission has been bringing hope and change to the City of Toronto since 1896. Over the past decade, Yonge Street Mission partnered with one of Canada's largest banks to develop a Computer Literacy Centre which is open to adults and children from Senior Kindergarten to Grade 12. Students learn everything from the basics of how to use a computer to how a computer network operates. The centre gives kids a head start in school by giving them the tools they need to succeed. The founders of Synetic Solutions have been active in supporting this program.
As well, the founders of Synetic Solutions are active supporters of Yonge Street Mission's "Evergreen Centre" - a drop in centre for youth. Specifically, the daily dinner program for 120 youths has been an adventure.

Our experience combined with our compassion for those that need our help to drive their required social change, is what compels us to become involved with those that can use our help the most. We cannot be everything to everyone, but we do selectively engage with those organizations that can benefit from our experience and expertise - especially around the design, development and deployment of software based solutions that can change the well being of humanity. If you have a project that could use our help, please let us know. We truly look forward to your request and will let you know what we think we can do.
