In the mid-1990s, Delphine Bahati Buchanan became keenly aware of the rapid and devastating impacts of HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa. She recognized the need for a significant and sustained response to the pandemic through partnerships between Canadians and Africans, particularly in the rural communities that were most wanting for basic information and services. With her extensive firsthand experience in East Africa and her medical expertise, Delphine, with her daughter Holly Lyaruu Buchanan, co-founded CSRAI in response to this need.

By 1997, a number of Canadians who shared their concerns, passion, and vision joined together and incorporated CSRAI. Since then the 100% volunteer organization has been thriving, thanks to the dedication of its many volunteer members. As a result of their hard work, more than 90% of donations go directly to frontline services in rural Africa.

 The organization has recently undergone a transformation as CSRAI expanded its network of African partners, renewed its Board of Directors and redefined its Committee structures.
