Full project description

Project descriptionWomen's Voice seeks to empower women to become leaders and spokespersons in their communities. This project provides Women's Voice sessions for 80 marginalised women from a variety of cultural backgrounds. 15 participants will act as Community Advocates using leadership skills and attend local community forums/ meetings, providing a voice to the most excluded members of the community. Women's Voice aims to help women overcome barriers to participation in their wider community and create sustainable, inter-generational change.
