Refugee Women's Network

THERE IS NO TOOL FOR DEVELOPMENT MORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN.

These are challenges Canadian woman face. We will help assess their language abilities, provide language programs, prepare them for formal education, provide financial support for training and development, and help them become become part of the Canadian fabric as selfsufficient contributors culturally, socially, economically and developmentally.

​Your support will help us ensure refugee and new immigrant women receive opportunities to upgrade their educational skills which will enable them to find employment and become contributing members of their families.
