We are a not-for-profit that works with migrant, refugee and asylum-seeker women to help them become economically empowered.Since 2013 we have helped over 2000 women from 105 countries. We offer a range of programs, entrepreneurship and employment opportunities that help women to develop their skills, confidence, and connections. We also provide support with finding employment, starting their own businesses, and navigating the Australian system.
We believe that when women are empowered, they can make a positive difference in their own lives and in the lives of their families and communities.
