Purpose: Three women’s communities that are isolated from one another will continue an ongoing project to bring their communities together. They will create educational activities and services for Anglophone and Aboriginal women in Baie-des-Chaleurs, adapted to their realities and prepared in their respective languages. This will help women who are extremely isolated to assume their place as full citizens and take an active part in the social, economic and cultural lives of their communities. It will also create a bond of solidarity among these women. Together, Francophone, Anglophone and Aboriginal women will improve their living conditions, as well as those of their families, and stop the violence to which they are subjected.
Comments: Multi-year project of 3 years (2007-2009).
