Growing Active Kids

How can children become confident, compassionate, well-rounded leaders of tomorrow? Give them chances to discover their unique interests and talents.

Growing Active Kids ensures that young people living in and around Manitoba Housing have the same opportunities as their peers throughout Winnipeg. Exploring music, dance, sport, cultural activities, and much, much more, kids are learning about the world and themselves.

Help kids shine! Your gift to the Growing Active Kids Fund provides opportunities that can inspire young people for a lifetime.

Growing Active Kids is a collaboration between the Government of Canada's Social Development Partnerships Program, Manitoba Housing and The Winnipeg Foundation, along with donors from all walks of life.
