Women and girls face systemic barriers, leading to higher poverty rates and mental health challenges. Your support can aid young girls, female-led lone-parent households, Indigenous, racialized, and newcomer women, and gender-based violence survivors in recovering. Addressing vulnerabilities, such as those at risk of falling into poverty, and empowering survivors are crucial. This enables young girls to grow with confidence, breaking the poverty cycle and realizing their potential. Together, we empower women and girls of all backgrounds, overcoming barriers for a brighter future.
