Women Helping Women is a support group offering refugee and new immigrant women opportunities to share and find support for the challenges they may be facing.
These challenges include dealing with physical and psychological scars from fleeing war and losing their possessions, losing loved ones and enduring slavery and torture. Being tortured and forced into slavery and raped daily mentally debilitates a woman. Without a nurturing, supportive environment to find access for support and referrals to counselling, women would continue to be isolated and depressed.
Together we can help them to find access to supportive programs and help them adjust to their new community.

English is a crucial tool for women to help settle in their communities. Being able to communicate proficiently enables a woman to advocate for their children, speak to their doctors about their care and provides them with opportunities to upgrade their education.
Proficiency in English is a significant empowering tool which will change the life of a woman from being withdrawn and afraid to empowered and an advocate. The confidence motivates refugee and new immigrant women to upgrade their education and pursue higher education. An educated woman can help provide for her family and feel like a contributing member both to her family and to her community.

Women arriving to Canada with a Professional Designation must retrain to re-qualify in Canada. This can be burdensome for many. Not being able to practice their profession in another country is a huge disappointment and leads many to be disheartened and depressed.
Completing skills based training program will ensure qualified training leading to employment. And employment will enable a refugee or new immigrant woman to support her family, financially, emotionally and become a confident empowered member of the economic fabric.
