Organizational Description: The Canadian Muslim Women's Institute (CMWI) is committed to support and empower newcomer and refugee Women and their families to contribute socially, politically and economically to Canadian Society.
As a community-based Centre for Women and their families the focus is on reducing isolation through providing culturally appropriate programs and services.
This includes safe and confidential access to information & referrals, basic needs, physical/emotional/health/social/spiritual support systems and people, as well as, economic and educational opportunities.
We run food bank on every other Wednesday and a full time donation centre when families can receive clothing, food, and household items for no charge.
The Canadian Muslim Women's Sewing Training Program and Social Enterprise - The Cutting Edge - is made up of two components: a 6 month training program and the establishment of a social enterprise.
This project has given the ladies hope that they will be able to stand on their own and support their families. Most of them find employment before they graduate.
