Spread the cheer with our Community Cheer Campaign
This holiday season, get together with your friends, family and co-workers and give back to the community! Help us meet our goal to raise $10,000 so that we can support our Self Sufficiency and Transformations Programs.
Transformations is an in depth self development course for women who want to make healthy changes in their lives. Many of the women who participate in Transformations have experienced abuse or trauma. Through the program, they learn how to communicate effectively, realize their full potential, embrace self compassion and explore opportunities to make positive changes in their lives. A Transformations participant had this to say about the importance of the program: “It is so important that women can become “unstuck” and realize that they have choice in life. It is empowering”
Through our Self Sufficiency Program, women can apply for funding from WIN to help them achieve their goals of financial independence. This could include a bursary to support the pursuit of further education or training, or funding to help them develop a small business or cooperative enterprise. Here is a quote from a recent participant in our Self Sufficiency Program: “What a tremendously powerful difference it makes to have people believe in your potential, and give you that energy and financial support needed for a smooth start!”
Starting December 1st, donations can be made at the till in our three stores, or for larger donations, please contact Shoko to discuss how you can participate in our Community Cheer Campaign and help to better the lives of women in our community.
