The Dilawri Foundation

At The Dilawri Foundation, we believe that every child deserves to have access to nutritious food, a safe learning environment, and the support they need to flourish. Our foundation is driven to enhance the lives of children and their families in the areas of healthcare, research and social services. To help us accomplish our objective of giving back to the communities where we live, we collaborate with charitable organizations that share our vision.


The Dilawri Foundation has found the perfect partner in Shania Kids Can. This seamless, four-year collaboration has presented our foundation with the opportunity to offer students from priority communities access to all the tools they need in order to succeed today for a promising tomorrow.

We hit the ground running in 2014 with the launch of the first Shania Kids Can clubhouse at Catherine Nichols Gunn School in Calgary, Alberta. Students taking part in the program are often bussed in from a homeless shelter. The clubhouse gives these children a chance to acquire important life skills, go on field trips and learn about what their community has to offer. 


Since launching in Calgary, The Dilawri Foundation has helped three additional clubhouses get off to a good start including Sir Winston Churchill Public School in Brampton, Ontario, Hjorth Road Elementary School in Surrey, British Columbia and Judge Bryant School in Regina, Saskatchewan. The children at each of the clubhouses have access to proven and effective programs including academic and psychological support, access to healthy nutrition, recreational programs and more.

The Dilawri Foundation is proud to partner up with Shania Kids Can on a program that recognizes the importance of offering an equal opportunity at success to all children, regardless of their circumstances.
