Liard Aboriginal Women’s Society Selected for Google.org Impact Challenge for Women and Girls Funding
The Liard Aboriginal Women's Society submitted our ideas and plan to the Google.org Impact Challenge for Women and Girls, and we are gratified that our project is one of 34 global projects selected for funding out of nearly 8,000 applications globally. In addition to funding, we will participate in a four-month accelerator program led by Google’s Accelerator and Women Techmakers communities and Impact Challenge partner Vital Voices to move our project forward.
The assistance of the Google.org Impact Challenge for Women and Girls will enable the LAWS Centre Project to support Indigenous women, who are amongst the most marginalized in Canadian society, and help them overcome socio-economic barriers. This assistance comes at a crucial time and will be used to create an intra-community support system marked by Indigenous women supporting other Indigenous women.
