Empowering women to reach Financial Autonomy

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Education
  • Employment

Our program is for women who wish to take an active role in changing their lives for the better. 

Our goal is to help these women emerge from a precarious situation, empower themselves, and reach their full potential, both social and economic. We offer support in three areas: entrepreneurship, completion of post-secondary education, and reintegration into the workforce. 

Encourage

Encourage women to regain confidence in their capacity to succeed and to take control of their destiny. 

Train

Offer professional and targeted training according each woman’s individual needs as well as individualized guidance and support throughout their journey through the program. 

Support

Provide participants with financial assistance such as microloans to fund a business project, or financial aid for a return to post-secondary studies.
