At the Canadian Women’s Foundation, we want every girl to believe in herself and realize she matters.
“I feel different about myself. I know that I’m not totally worthless. I used to think I wasn’t very valuable and stuff. I learned I’m worth more than I thought I was.”
“When I came [to the program], I realized I can be myself. Then I realized I can be myself everywhere else too.”
“I like sports more. I exercise more now, too. I’m faster and I can move better.”
“I learned not to let anyone put me down.”
“I feel like I’m treated like a person—not just a girl.”
We help girls in Canada to move into confidence by funding dynamic programs that engage their body, mind, and spirit. In these programs, at-risk girls can explore science and technology, play sports, learn to think critically, or take on leadership, in a supportive all-girl environment.
Through our new Nancy Baron Mentorship for Girls Program, girls aged 9-13 will be mentored for two-years and the learnings from this groundbreaking work will impact and improve services offered to 10,000+ girls across the country.
