Investing in our Future – Preparing Indigenous Women for Sustainability through Culture and Social Innovation

Through a partnership between Newfoundland Aboriginal Women’s Network and Ulnooweg Education Centre, 40 women from 15 Indigenous communities have been trained as peer facilitators who deliver culturally-based workshops on mental health and gender-based violence. This investment will help determine whether it’s feasible to build the community workshops into a social enterprise that is self-sufficient and sustainable. The project aims to develop women’s capacity around social innovation while supporting mental health and preventing gender-based violence.

Grant amount: $50,000
