Episode 6: Anishiative

Anishia­tive is a grass­roots Indige­nous youth lead­er­ship pro­gram based in Win­nipeg’s North End. The group aims to spark change with­in the com­mu­ni­ty through vol­un­teerism. What start­ed with dis­trib­ut­ing food in the com­mu­ni­ty has now grown into a wider ini­tia­tive, with vol­un­teers clean­ing up lit­ter and sharps, col­lect­ing coats, win­ter gear and oth­er essen­tial items for those in need and pro­vid­ing food to passersby.
