2023: PAIA 's partnership with Kamaji in Malawi has enabled 500 people to be trained on how to make organic fertilizer. It is through this program that jobs were created, entrepreneurship was enabled and school children learned a new skill.

In June 2023, PAIA helped with youth activities during the fires in Alberta that caused Fort Chipewyan residents to be evacuated to Fort McMurray. PAIA ensured that all youths were kept busy and entertained with events and we distributed donations from other organizations working hand-in-hand with Mikisew Cree First Nations.

Each year, we host a Hoops for Loops basketball tournament to help raise funds for our breakfast program for schools in Zimbabwe. In 2018, our young Sudbury basketball superstars came out and together we raised $300. In 2022, we raised $650. We would also like to thank Sudbury Tourism for donating backpacks, Kayla's Slime Booth helped us raise $50 towards our breakfast programs. Parchem Screenprinting donated items for our silent auction. It was with the donations that we managed to start our first breakfast program in a school in Masvingo, Zimbabwe.

In 2022, PAIA sponsored 8 students from Matabeleland who could not attend school due to a lack of funds to pay school fees. The students attend Hadane Secondary School, Tohwe Secondary School and MIlton High School. The children's families expressed their gratitude and relief that their children are now able to attend school. Some of the students were not able to access their high school results due to non-payment of fees. Being able to access their exam results means that they can pursue other avenues, like attend college or find jobs. PAIA was working in partnership with Khanya (Be the Light) on this project.
It is our aim to partner with other not-for-profit organizations to bring about change in the world.

More than 800 students at Shongamiti High School in Masvingo, Zimbabwe were fed breakfast by our team in 2018. The children's stories so touched the team and we are motivated to change their lives for the better. These children walk more than 10km to school and have to leave their houses at 3 am to get to school in time (7:00 am). Some of these children walk barefooted to school and the positive energy they possess toward everything is really inspiring. We want to help these children go to school and stay in school and excel in life.
