The mission of Beloved Women is to care for, empower, and support women through capacity-building and leadership training while addressing the emotional, physical, spiritual and socio-economic needs of the women they serve.

Using the funds that Beloved Women received from WICC, eight Syrian refugee women were able to complete all three levels of jewellery-making class and graduate.  Six women were able to graduate from a sewing course, ten from a conversational English class and fourteen took part in makeup classes.

Funding from WICC has been a blessing for these women, helping them acquire skills, build strong relationships, bridge cultures and create networks of support.
