Girls Incorporated Northern Alberta, Fort McMurray

This program aims to break the cycle of gender-based and intergenerational violence in the region and fill a critical gap in services. Girls Incorporated taps into Indigenous traditions of healing and empowerment: storytelling, Indigenous knowledge-sharing based on the 7 Sacred Teachings, and connections with women mentors. The program engages two age groups of girls in Anzac and Fort McKay—both remote Indigenous communities. Interpretive services will be made available in Cree, Chipewyan and Dene

Grant amount: $23,000
