The lives you’ve impacted
Learn more about how the programs you support empower women, girls, and gender-diverse people, helping them to move out of violence, out of poverty and into confidence and leadership:
“I left the program with so much more confidence than when I started. That was a huge part of my healing journey as an Indigenous woman going into business.”
“When I look at my life now, I am proud. I’m able to provide for my son … I’m happy, but I still want to do more to support women who have experienced abuse as they rebuild their lives.”
“I carry myself much stronger as a woman than I did before. … I don’t know where I would be without the programs at the girls’ centre.”
“It’s so important to have these programs for newcomers, just to explore the possibilities and to make connections in a new country.”
“This program would not be what it is today without the Canadian Women’s Foundation’s support. Words cannot thank you enough!” (Paige Van Praet-Guthier, Program Coordinator, Girls’ Mentoring, Sarnia-Lambton Rebound)
