Purpose: Quebec Native Women is proposing a two year unifying project to consolidate community development and serve as a single voice to reduce the outrageously high level of violence in Aboriginal communities in Quebec. The organization seeks to strengthen the capacity of the 10 Aboriginal nations and its 40 local organizations so that they are able to intervene with women who experience numerous forms of abuse and violence. Properly equipped, 141 women will become agents of change in their respective communities. The impact of the project will reverberate through all Aboriginal communities, which will be better able to act against violence.
Comments: Multi-year project of 2 years (2008-2009).
