Empowering women toward Financial Autonomy

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Education
  • Work

Our program is aimed for women who wish to take a step, a step toward self-reliance.

We wish to help these women emerge from a precarious situation by developing their true social and economical potential and empowering them on the long term by: starting a business, pursuing post-secondary education and returning to the workplace.


Be a source of inspiration to encourage and motivate women to find the energy and space to invest in their own development.


Offer professional training targeting the individual needs of women as well as personalized support throughout their journey.


Provide financial support in the form of grants for a return to studies, or microloans to fund a start-up business.
