EMPOWERING CARE PACKS - RELIEF PROGRAM
Empowering Care Packs will provide essential and restorative support for women, girls, and gender-diverse folks who have experienced the effects of gender-based violence, structural poverty, marginalization, social isolation. Our humanitarian-led relief program ensures ongoing advocacy and barrier-free access to supports tailored to women* at-risk who need to sustain their lives during the pandemic while providing the conditions for meaningful pathways to economic autonomy, health and wellness, and personal agency. Each Empowering Care Pack includes healthy food boxes, financial assistance, gift cards for essentials, menstrual items, personal aid, family products, a note of positive affirmation, community-based intersectional resources for economic supports, and additional services.
Our aim is to empower made-vulnerable women and equity-seeking gender-diverse folks to build thriving livelihoods through enhancing care and uplift their voices and lived experiences in communities. We know the profound value in supporting women, girls, and gender-diverse folks to access their human rights: the right to safety, protection, food, adequate shelter, healthcare, and enabling their development and capacity to exercise power and transformation for themselves. To empower women means a lasting investment in their future—and the whole ecosystem!
