Welcome to
the International Association for Transformation

Creating a better world

Create a peaceful, pollution-free world with an abundant standard of living for all.

The International Association for Transformation, IAT, is a Canadian, non-profit organization involved in the Philippines.

​IAT has forged strong links with Indigenous and First Nations peoples in Canada and the Philippines.

​Opportunities are provided for Canadian youth and school groups to visit and volunteer with the projects in the Philippines projects.

How can you help?

Child sponsorship

It costs only $475 per year, less that a cup of coffee a day, to make a major difference
in the life of a child who has so little!

Volunteer overseas

​IAT is interested in establishing linkages with schools and youth groups and individuals interested in practically oriented overseas experiences in the Philippines.


Through IAT's sponsorship and community development programs, hundreds of children have been able to realize their dreams and visions for a better life.

My name is Irene Kopel and my wish is that everyone interested in sponsorship can experience what I have as an IAT sponsor-the soul satisfying transformations that sponsorship can bring about in a child when it is done through an outstanding charity.

Our locations


IAT staff members and senior students, in the Philippines, continue to play a major role in resolving conflicts between various tribes and in promoting and fostering peace in the area.


IAT Canada helps bridge the gap between developed and underdeveloped countries through by connecting Canadian students and teachers with those in the Philippines.
