Every autumn, our forests are covered with their lively colors and we go off to explore a beautiful region of Quebec, enjoy warm Indian Summer days, go apple picking and observe hundreds of thousands of birds emigrate south. Regardless of the activities we choose to take part in, we all know that our autumns offer undeniably spectacular landscapes! Our childhood memories of the season even remind us of impromptu games in the middle of heaps of leaves suddenly transformed into playing fields. 

Unfortunately, most underprivileged children are unable to enjoy similar autumn days outside of the city. For this reason, we offer an Ecological Day for 120 underprivileged children every year.

Ecological Day

Learn More

The Ecological and Prevention Day is an annual activity offered to more than 120 underprivileged children aged between 8 and 10 years old, living in the metropolitan areas of Montreal and Quebec City. With the help of our generous donors, Children Now is able to offer these children the opportunity to experience an unforgettable day in the countryside. The objective of this activity is to offer children from economically underprivileged neighbourhoods the possibility of enjoying the educational and enriching experience of a nature class.

The children will take part in many activities such as learning how to navigate the forest, survival skills and how to use a compass. They will also be sensitized about the importance of respecting the environment and ecology, while of course, having heaps of fun. The children will receive a delicious and generous warm meal, as well as two snacks. Moreover, they will receive several small gifts such as school supplies, school bags, clothes, hygiene products, a compass and games that they will take home with them.

We are aware that the joy we offer these young children only represents a small part of what can and must be done in order to improve their future. However, we also know that if we succeed in making them happy during this day, the beneficial and enriching effects of these outdoor activities will have a long-lasting impact on their future in addition to providing them with wonderful childhood memories! Every action taken to help the less fortunate in our society represents a pledge of hope for our community and the adults of tomorrow. Because their future… is also ours!
