Community Women's Initiative Fund

Community Women’s Initiative (CWI) is a non-profit, student-led organization comprised of medical students in British Columbia who are united with a common goal to support and empower women. CWI promotes equity, opportunity, and safety for women in challenging circumstances through education, fundraising, and raising awareness.

Our Goals: 

EMPOWER WOMEN THROUGH EDUCATION 
We believe that learning and sharing knowledge are pivotal in empowering women. CWI provides educational webinars and confidential virtual tutoring sessions to women and children.
 
ENGAGE OUR COMMUNITY BY RAISING AWARENESS
Local women’s organizations have expressed that there is a critical need to raise awareness of women’s issues in our community. We advocate for women by sharing their stories and creating easily accessible social media materials that promote women’s physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. 
 
FUNDRAISE FOR ORGANIZATIONS & SHELTERS SUPPORTING WOMEN
Currently, women’s shelters in Canada are overwhelmed and underfunded. CWI provides financial support to local women’s shelters and organizations by fundraising through a GoFundMe page, and collaborating with local businesses and charities to host fundraising and item-drive events. Further, CWI serves as a liaison between community partners and shelters to ensure resources get to those who need them most.
