Purpose: The project seeks to reduce all forms of violence against Inuit women and their children by making abuse a priority issue in Inuit communities, providing culturally relevant resources to women and front-line workers, promoting healing for abused women and children, and empowering Inuit women to take charge of their social and economic well-being. The project will consist of two components: pilot testing a wellness tool within Iqaluit, Kuujjuaq and Nunatasiavut communities that combines cultural and practical skills building on abuse awareness and prevention; and knowledge exchange between elders and youth to promote leadership roles in reducing all forms of abuse and family violence.
