FTC Canada greatly values the partnership formed with Hanlon Business Park neighbour Unisync Group and their efforts to support needing families overseas particularly in earthquake ravaged Haiti.

Since 2008 Unisync Group has donated over $1 million worth of clothing to FTC Canada for needy children and their families in hurting countries around the globe. Unisync provided $94,000 in clothing for shipment to Port-au-Prince, Haiti where many families lost everything in the massive 7.0 earthquake in January.

FTC Canada has sent 15 containers of food and supplies to partners on the ground in Haiti. Unisync’s desire to reach out in such a global manner demonstrates a willingness to add value to the ongoing international efforts of the charitable work of FTC Canada.

Unisync is a full service, vertically integrated provider of corporate apparel and promotional products. One of Unisync’s core values is contributing to the communities they work in. With a distribution centre located in Guelph, ON Unisync is actively supporting initiatives in the city while collaborating with significant global initiatives.

“Unisync is extremely honored to be partnered with FTC Canada in support of many of the important initiatives their organization heads up”, says Carmin Garofalo, president of Unisync Group. “Along with providing relief and aid on a global level, it was important to us to join with an organization, that supports our communities on local levels as well.”

Guelph, Ontario – “The school is no longer under threat of closure….” Those were the words shared by the Head Master of Equator Primary School last week during the commissioning of a brand new set of latrine/toilets just outside Nairobi, Kenya.

In October 2009 it was brought to FTC Canada’s attention that the Nairobi School Board was prepared to shut down Equator Primary School due to the unsafe conditions of the school’s bathrooms unless new ones were built. FTC Canada then called its latrine building partner Connecting Countries and asked if they could take on funding this additional project and they did. Building began in January 2010 and last week the latrines were completed. Three-hundred students now have clean, safe latrines and most importantly will not be forced out of their school.

FTC Canada would like to thank their partner Connecting Countries for their ongoing commitment towards helping provide African students with outstanding learning conditions.
