Past Projects


Maica Impact Inc. was only recently registered as a non profit organization; however the vision behind this organization was birthed in 2007 by TDSB secondary school teacher Rachael Hernandez. As far back as she can remember, a desire to help children and adolescents in particular proved to be the driving force behind her choice of career and involvement with students in Canada and abroad. Maica Impact's members have been doing charity work on the island of Jamaica for the last four years. As personal and community interest has grown, so too has Maica Impact's vision and poverty relief projects. Below is a list of communities and institutions that have already been impacted:
