Charity: The Jordana Lokash Foundation
The Jordana Lokash Foundation
Toronto, Ontario M5P 3M1
Mission & Goals:
To explore and provide ways of using sport as a means of integrating physically and mentally disabled and challenged youth into mainstream recreational activities and to provide equipment for this purpose.
How your contribution helps:
The Foundation has agreed to help provide the equipment and staffing for a sport related program designed for a small class of 8 special needs children. The aim is to use physical activity as a means of increasing their fitness levels and building personal confidence. The intent of the program is such that this special group of children will feel more confident with themselves with the confidence to attain greater acceptance with their peers.
We believe that this is something Jordana would have supported whole heartedly had she been given the opportunity.
