Who We Are

Founded in 1979 as a non-profit service society, and based in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, IAT has had ongoing programs in Canada and the Philippines for the past 36 years.

IAT's primary focus is upon:

  • Multicultural Youth Development and Leadership Training;
  • Environmental Protection and Restoration;
  • Tropical Agriculture and Organic Farming.


To raise the awareness of humanity concerning global conditions and to support its efforts toward creating a peaceful, pollution-free world with an abundant standard of living for all.

General Objectives:

  • To provide opportunities for inter-cultural youth to acquire the knowledge, confidence and competence to enable them to create positive global change;
  • To initiate and assist in the implementation of sustainable community based self-help projects in developing countries;
  • To develop human potential through fostering cross-cultural unity and understanding;
  • To promote environmental conservation and global sustainability.

Our Symbols:

IAT's logo represents the uplifting or evolution of human consciousness beyond the greed, fear, conflict and material confines of the earth plane.  It symbolizes the repetitive nature of education and experience that leads to wisdom.

A circle is a symbol of unity, healing, integrity and completion.  The spiral is an extension of the circle - a soaring to ever increasing heights.  It represents the repetitive nature of the seasons and cycles - but always there is evolution, growth and change.
Dandelion seeds blowing in the wind represent the hundreds of underprivileged children IAT has empowered with education and leadership skills during the past 36 years.  Their potential is now being realized.

These are seeds of transformation, that are germinating deep within the mass consciousness.  They are creating waves of awakening, reminding increasing numbers who they are, why they are here, and what their purpose is.
The seeds symbolize the new generation of children who are pioneering a new era.  It is their mission to lead humanity in co-creating a world of peace and harmony and a future filled with promise for all.

These are the seeds of compassion, understanding, respect for nature, non-violence, personal freedom, wisdom and love.
