With Teams in: Waterloo Region
What moves you? Join us on October 5, 2019 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people everywhere.
Focus for Ethnic Women has existed in this Region since 1987. We have successfully run many diverse programs since inception. We fill a niche for assisting the vulnerable population of immigrant women and visible minority women by empowering them for tomorrow!
our programs acclimatize them to their new home, Canada! the programs we offer give them networking opportunities, introduction to the immediate surroundings and help with their integration into the communities they settle in.
We support women in the Waterloo Region by providing a nurturing, culturally sensitive environment that builds self-esteem.
Our next endeavor is to assist them with basic computer knowledge to cope with a technical environment. We also promote 'active living' as a means to their integration into our society and are consultants for a WLU project on Active Living.
