The Marquis Project is a community-based, non-profit, charitable non-governmental organization dedicated to working with partners in Canada and abroad to support and actively participate in sustainable projects and partnerships that improve the quality of life in small, rural communities in developing countries. It is also committed to building local awareness of international development issues through educating Manitobans about economic, political and social issues at both local and global levels.
