VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN PREVENTION PROJECT

The Aboriginal Women’s Association of PEI Inc. (AWAPEI) goal is to enhance, support, educate and empower the Aboriginal women in PEI through Capacity building, focus group, prevention, awareness and equal opportunity through knowledge sharing of programming/services (indigenous and non-indigenous organizations) that will assist both AWAPEI and our funder the goal to Prevent  Violence Against Women.

Another key component of this project is the importance to revive the culture in the women’s soul and to have them embrace the knowledge they will be given.  This project will spread prevention and raise awareness of violence against Women at the same time provide women in Culturally safe environments.

The Objectives are to have knowledge sharing sessions from provincial and community programs to bring awareness about programming/services to women and their families, to instill in them a firm  knowledge  that they are not alone and help is available to them when they need it, and to provide cultural knowledge to women so they may feel culturally attached to their culture for some it will explore a new spiritual connection on their healing journey.
