When women live with low-incomes, so do their children -  continuing the cycle of poverty. 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. They empower women and girls in Canada to move out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence and leadership.

Believe in the power of women

Money raised by Ricki's helps fund community programs across the country through the Canadian Women's Foundation.  These programs offer skills and employment training to low-income women to give them the tools they need to have a financially independent life. Funds can also help with child care, transportation and other basic needs so that these women can participate in training programs without barriers.

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 lives 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 women and their children move out of poverty and into a better life.
