WICC is Committed to Healing in Indigenous Communities via Awakening Grants

Would you like to be part of this healing process?

Together, we can help fund work that supports Indigenous women in the following areas:

  • Addressing gender-based violence
  • Economic justice
  • Health
  • Cultural education
  • Child welfare
  • Advocacy
  • Anti-racism
  • Peace

Projects will promote these values

  • Cooperation
  • Self-sufficiency
  • The growth of Indigenous languages and cultures
  • Awareness of underlying causes of suffering
  • Empowerment of women
  • The ability of women to develop their full potential
  • Culturally safe education and training for Indigenous women

This grant is 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.
