  • Empowerment of women
  • The ability of women to develop their full potential
  • Culturally safe education and training for Indigenous women

Awakening Grants are funded by sales of the limited edition prints of “Awakening,” a painting by Canadian artist David Alexander Risk. We thank him for donating this painting to WICC, and our board for its vision to use this gift to benefit Indigenous women in Canada.
