Dear Friends, January 24, 2013
The NCWCDO was established by the National Council of Women of Canada in 1985. It is a Registered Charitable Organization dedicated to the advancement of women and girls in Third World countries and Canada. Funds are raised to support projects that address education and skills that will improve the life of women and children through basic education and skill training. In addition, projects that will protect children and young women from physical, sexual and mental abuse are strongly supported. In the past 25 years the NCWCDO has supported programs in Canada, India, and Africa.
A donations towards these GRASS ROOTS projects have shown a positive influence in the communities. The NCWCDO aims to fund small local initiatives that contribute to the empowerment of women to become self sufficient and to the prevention of crimes and abuse against women and children. Volunteers, predominantly women play a significant role in all projects.
A small donation towards these programs has lasting impact. Please consider supporting this non- profit national organization. Let us help those who are less fortunate and those who suffer daily from mental, physical or sexual abuse. We are fortunate but must remember to look outside our community where innocent young children and girls are suffering and often forgotten. They need our help!
PROJECTS FUNDED 2012
THE EQUALITY EFFECT Funding provided contributed to a Canadian initiative seeking to secure a court order so that the State of Kenya enforces existing criminal protection from rape and assault for young girls and women.
OUR KENYA KIDS funds were donated towards the “Tailoring Project” which provides practical training to young girls and women with AIDS, the opportunity to advance their technical skills that will empower them towards self sufficiency that will improve their future.
CHEZ DORIS WOMEN’S SHELTER is a drop in day center for homeless women in Montreal. Funding is committed to the establishment of a sewing class where women have the opportunity to be trained for employment in an effort to achieve independence , off the street and into home.
Thank you so very much for considering and supporting this important mission.
WOMEN AND CHILDREN NEED YOUR SUPPORT.
