    for over 30 years serving on Alberta and Canadian Parks and Recreation boards for many of those years and understood the importance of play in the development of a child These men saw the potential available with these decommissioned playgrounds to change the lives of children little or no access to such play Since Emmanuel Foundation began we have had the privilege of installing over 60 playgrounds in developing countries around the world In 2006 Gary received on behalf of Emmanuel Foundation a World Leisure Reward at the international conference in China for this innovation For over thirty years there had been a service in Alberta led by Lovyl Marion called Alberta Development Relief Agency Aid International SocietY ADRA ASI which had gathered goods to send overseas to help with international relief and development efforts In 2003 ADRA ASI joined with Rotary s Humanitarian Aid Warehouse Society HAWS to work together for this common goal In 2010 both ADRA ASI and HAWS approached Emmanuel Foundation to take over this important work which we have been privileged to do so since September of 2010 Guiding Principles Mission Statement Core Values Emmanuel Foundation s Guiding Principles Sustainable Development Our goal is to support projects that will help bring improvement and transformation that would be sustainable and have long lasting benefit to a community Community Initiative We seek for initiatives to come from nationals and community leaders in order that there is increased ownership and community participation in each project Value of a Child The welfare of children remains a primary motivation for our services We believe that the life and potential of a child born in one place is just as valuable as that in another no matter what the financial circumstances might be Green Stewardship The realities of the needs that exist in much of the world and the amount of waste our society generates need to be reconciled We seek to harness the surplus from our society to share from our abundance to serve our fellow man Emmanuel Foundation s Mission Statement As Christ followers we desire to demonstrate God s love by sharing our resources to create hope for a better tomorrow for individuals families and communities of developing countries in the areas of their physical social and spiritual wellbeing Emmanuel Foundation s Core Values Emmanuel Foundation was historically established as a society that was shaped and motivated by being Christ followers What does that means to us It means that for us faith in God specifically finds meaning through the life and person of Jesus Christ God has revealed His and our nature and design through Jesus and informs us through His life much of our mission and purpose This effects and shapes our values as a foundation in a number of ways Demonstrated Love God revealed that He cares about us to the extent that through Jesus He got involved in our lives to help Thus we use the term Emmanuel which means God with us This
