When women live in poverty, so do their children... and the cycle continues.
Join us in our partnership with the Canadian Women's Foundation to help End Poverty for Women. The Canadian Women's Foundation is Canada's first and only national public foundation for women and girls, and is dedicated to preventing violence against women, building the self-esteem of girls and helping low-income women out of poverty.
Believe in the power of women
Money raised by Ricki's help fund community programs across the country administered by the Canadian Women's Foundation. These programs offer skills and employment training to low income women to give them the tools they need to help break the cycle of poverty. Monies also assist with food, shelter, child care, transportation and other basic needs so that these women can participate in training programs.
End poverty for women
Ricki's End Poverty for Women campaign is about giving her a hand up - not a hand out. When we give women the skills and training they need to achieve economic independence we are transforming her life and those of her children.
Hope for a better life
To date, we have raised over $1,000,000 toward this cause. This year with your support we will raise over $100,000 to help 40 women and their children out of poverty and into a better life.
