Dedicated to Afghan Canadian Youth in Montreal. Building a Strong Network and Assisting with Youth-led Initiatives.

We are currently open to accepting new board directors. Please contact us if you are interested.

Ayaam, established in 2010, is an organization that heavily relies on private sponsorships for its activities. We have never received any funding from a public body or the government. The administrative fees are solely covered by the president of our association. Our mission is centered around supporting youth engagement, creating a safe space, and promoting community advancement. This is achieved through various initiatives and programs that foster a sense of belonging and empower young individuals to actively participate in their communities. Private sponsorships play a crucial role in enabling us to continue our work and make a positive impact on the lives of the youth we support. 

If you would like to be a sponsor and help Ayaam continue its activities please contact us.
